^utbor's .statement. 

Equipped with an experience of more than thirty years in genealogical 
research the author has employed every available means for the acquisition 
of data for this family history and has conscientiously used the materials 
procured. He has met with many discouragements, and annoying delays 
were occasioned which could not be avoided. 

As no future edition is anticipated the compiler of this volume will give 
no attention to criticism. If errors are discovered — and no book of this 
class was ever free from them — it will be too late to correct them on the 
printed page. For more than six years he has devoted much of his time 
to this undertaking and has passed too many milestones on his pilgrimage 
to attempt anything more of this kind. When the last page is printed he 
will lay down his gaiealogical pen for all time and commit to the numerous 
families represented in this volume the result of his researches for what it 
is worth. 

He is profoundly grateful to those who have so kindly and generously 
assisted him, and for the confidence reposed in him by many whom he has 
never seen. Many pleasant hours have been enjoyed while writing the 
matter for these pages, and the author hopes that every copy of the book 
will be preserved with sacred care by those to whom they are entrusted.

Genealogical works are issued in nearly as many forms and withi as great 
a variety of classification as they have compilers and publishers. Each 
writer has his own ideal, and arranges his materials accordingly. The com- 
piler of this genealogy has examined nearly all such works now in the 
alcoves of our Xew England libraries, and has found many very ingenious 
and comprehensive arrangements of names and numerals, but has not 
adopted any of them as a whole. When compiling his " History of the 
Ancient Ryedales," in i8S6, he classified his data upon the same model as 
found in this book, and after a comparison with many genealogies published 
since, has found nothing more satisfactory. 

The reader should always consult the "Table of Contents." Here will 
be found the titles or heads by which the numerous branches and families 
are designated. In roost instances each branch will be distinguished by 
the name of the town, county and state where the ancestors first sat down, 
or where a majority of the families descended from the same parent-stock, 
have lived. Under these captions each family record will be arranged and 
classified by generations, beginning with the name of the person heading 
the list and running downv/ard to the youngest children. Between the 
names of persons of dift'erent generations will stand the words " Second 
Generation " or " Fourth Generation," as the case may require. There 
■will also appear with each person's name, and above the regular type line, 
a small figure called a " Superior," which also denotes the generation to 
which the person belongs. All of the second, third, fourth and fifth gen- 
eration will follow in regular order, beginning in every instance with the 
eldest son. 

There will also appear a bold-faced figure in a parenthesis (4) following 
each person's name when such name is printed in bold-face letters at the 
heads of paragraphs ; these denote the number of persons in that particular 
branch of the family bearing the same Christian na?ne, and will, in everv 
instance, have reference to that individual's _/f/'j-/' //^zw^. Thus Mark* (6)', 
son of Mark-' (5), will show that in this family there had been five persons 
named Mark Milliken before the one mentioned first, and that three gen- 
erations had been previously recorded.' By this very simple arrangement 
no two persons bearing the same Christian name need be confounded, as 
such will, in no instance, stand connected with the same figures. In case 
where a person's name stands in its proper position in some early branch 
of the family, as Thomas' (4), and is again used at the head of a sub-branch, 
this name will appear as Thomas^ (T), associated with the reference, "See 
Millikens of Buxton " or "See Milligans of County Sligo, Ireland," as the 
case may require ; so that each person's name can be readily traced though 
not attended in both positions by the same figures. In the oldest families 
dating back to i6oo A.D. and embracing as many as eight or ten genera- 
tions, the reader should observe these distinctions. 

Another important feature of this book which greatly facilitates one's 


search for the name of any particular person, are the sub-heads comprising 
the names of parents, as " Children of Nathaniel and Mary Bryant," or 
" Children of Samuel and Sally Waterman." as the case requires. All of 
such sub-heads, designating each family, will be found of great assistance, 
and by reference to the name of either parent and the page number attend- 
ing it, this family record will be found. The full maiden names of all wives 
"of Millikens, Milligans and MuUikans will thus be found, unless they are 
intermarried with a lower generation ; then they will be arranged alphabet- 
ically in the " Index of Surnames " at the close of the volume. If any one 
wishes to find the record or biography of some particular family, and can 
remember the maiden name of a wife, or mother, he may quickly do so by 
consulting this index and running his finger down the list until he finds 
Waterhouse or Woodward, as the case may be; then, by turning to the 
page designated in the body of the book, that family record will appear. 

These indices supplementing the table of contents, are all that will be 
required by any intelligent reader, and it is believed that this simple ar- 
rangement, classification, and equipment, will commend itself to the judg- 
ment of all who may possess a copy of this book. 

In nearly all genealogies there are many repetitions, and the reader 
must turn from page to page to find all that is published concerning an in- 
dividual. The annoyance occasioned by such complicated forms is obviated 
by the plan carried out in this volume, and all that is said about any mem- 
ber of a family will be found in one place unless alluded to in some prelim- 
inary chapter incidentally, or in its proper position in a sub-heading. 

At the close of the body of the volume will appear a collection of short 
sketches and fragments that could not be otherwise classified, designated 
" Miscellaneous Notes." 

A "General Supplement" will contain data that reached the compiler 
too late for its proper place in the pedigree to which it belonged; and a 
reader who has been disappointed because certain names and records do 
not appear with those of the other members of the family, may find them 
quietly reposing with those of their belated kindred in this department. 

It will be observed that names of all children whose mothers were 
maiden-named Milliken, Milligan, or Mulliken, follow immediately after the 
paragraphs containing such mother's name, birth, and marriage; while the 
children bearing the father's surname will appear, in many instances, with 
another generation upon another page. This will be indicated by such 
references as " See 4th generation" or " See forward." Only the names, 
births and marriages of the children of mothers maiden-named Milliken, 
etc., will appear. With rare exceptions, names of grandchildren may be 
found in foot notes below the text. This limit was necessary in order to 
keep the volume from becoming too large. But the publication of so many 
names of persons collaterally connected with the Millikens will be valuable 
data for those who may attempt the task of compiling the genealogies of 
such families.

The publication of portraits and views of family seats in a family his- 
tory is both appropriate and important. Their appearance gratifies a natural 
and almost universal desire to mark the resemblance between persons rep- 
resenting different branches of a wndely distributed family, and the wish to 
see likenesses of distinguished persons much heard of but never seen. In 
reading the biographies of men there is an instinctive imagination of the 
mould of their forms and faces, but fancy is a fickle goddess and often 
misleading. \\'hen penning the personal sketches in this book the inquisi- 
tive may turn their attention to the portraits and be satisfied. 

Valuable portraits of deceased members of a family, of which there were 
no duplicates, are often destroyed by fire or Hood and cannot be restored ; 
but such are multiplied in an edition of the family history and will thus be 
permanently preserved. 

Views of residences exhibit the changes in architecture between pioneer 
days and more modern times, and the variety as represented in different 
lands and localities — east, west, north, and south. In this volume may be 
found views of the villa of a resident of the Netherlands, of the old-fashioned, 
low-browed cottage in England, the home of the well-to-do farmer in Ireland 
and the stately seat of a Scottish gentleman. The American pictures rep- 
resent the timber-walled cabin of the pioneer, the mansion of the southern 
planter, the pretty cottage of the Gorgean village, the suburban residence 
of Ohio, the home of a western farmer, and the great rambling house in 
New England. Views of residences in Australia, St. Christopher and Cali- 
fornia were sought for but not obtained. 

The manuscripts in the National Library of Erance disclose the fact 
that "coats-of-arms abounding in angles" were produced for Simon Millanges 
the distinguished scholar and tpyographer of Bordeaux, but an extended 
search only revealed his "Printers Marque," a copy of which will be repro- 
duced in this book. This picture certainly abounds with cherubs, which may 
be identical, but not artistically depicted. Through the kindly assistance 
of American consuls we made diligent search for a portrait of this eminent 
citizen of Bordeaux but did not rind one. There is a street, howe\er, in 
the 5th arrondisement of the city called "Rue Millanges," which perpetuates 
his name. 

Inquiries were also instituted with the hope of procuring portraits of 
some distinguished member of the Milligen or Millinga families of Gronin- 
gin in the Netherlands, but their families were unwilling to have them pub- 
lished in an American book. 

The list of portraits in this book represent members of the family in 
various stations in life: a member of Parliament, tv.-o members of Con- 
gress, clergymen, teachers, lawyers, bankers, merchants, mechanics, sea- 
men and husbandmen : and some of the dear old mothers ; and all ages 
from the pretty maiden to the centenarian. 


The author regrets that the illustrations could not have been more evenly 
distributed through this volume, but all attempts to procure either portraits 
or residential views from some of the families ha\e been fruitless ; and those 
to whom he has applied for such may, when they have seen the deficiency, 
join in this regret. 

Nearly all of the illustrations have been contributed and paid for by 
individuals or families ; a few were paid for by funds donated by men of 

Many American members of the family have expressed a desire that 
some portraits of early and distinguished persons named Mulliken, Millikin, 
or Milligan should appear in this book, and for seven years the compiler 
has sought diligently, through an extensive and costly correspondence for 
original copies of such. 

A portrait of Richard Albert Millikex the Irish poet, was published 
in one edition of his works, but no copy has been found. Since this volume 
was in press, a portrait in oil of the late Hijn. Robert Milligan, the dis- 
tinguished merchant and member of Parliament, was discovered in the Tov;n 
Hall of Bradford, England, and through the kindness of a kinsman of the 
deceased gentleman a photographic copy was procured ; but the surface of 
the original painting, through some fault in the pigment, was considerably 
defaced by crackling and these imperfections were reproduced in the copy ; 
the published likeness is not, therefore, as attractive as could be desired. 

There are now living in London members of the Milliken family (of 
Scottish descent) who have long filled important and honorable official 
positions under the crown but, though often solicited, they have refused to 
have their portraits appear in the family history ; an action much to be re- 

Inquiries were instituted in Scotland with the hope of finding a portrait 
of James Milliken late of Milliken in Renfrewshire, K;5q.. but it was learned 
that the only one known to have been painted was destroyed when the old 
Milliken mansion was burned. 

With but few exceptions the halftone portraits produced in this book 
were made from original photographs and paid for by individuals or family 
contributions. A few are reproduced from old-fashioned daguerreotypes 
and ambrotypes and are not as clear as desired ; but they were likenesses 
of deceased persons and the only one in existence. The variation in clear- 
ness and artistic finish is due to the character of the original photographs. 
The halftone reproductions were made by the best houses in New F.ngland. 

The likeness of Cai't. Alexander Milliken, commander of the Ameri- 
can privateer Fame, was discovered in the nick of time amongst his papers 
in an old trunk in IJiddeford, Maine. Photographic copies were procured 
but were not sufficiently clear, being deficient of contrast of light and sh^de, 
and a copy retouched by crayons was made for this book. 

The portrait of "Uncle \at" Milliken was made at his home at Bar 
Mills, Me., by Kahili of Portland, who was employed by the author to visit 
the old gentleman for that purpose. It is a true likeness of the venerable 
man, now 97 years of age, but for want of proper photographic accessories 
the shading is not strong. 


The portrait of Johx Milliicin of Canada, the Centenarian, was pro- 
duced from a lithographic copy of a small and somewhat indistinct photo- 
graph, but was pronounced ''a fairly good likeness." 

Views of Residences. Four of the full-page halftone views of family 
seats now published was reproduced from paintings in black and white for 
this book by the celebrated artist, C. I. Ostrand of Boras, Sweden. The 
original photographs were not clear and it was found necessary to have 
paintings made, and from these the plates were copied — an expensive ven- 
ture. Three of these views represent homes in E:ngland, Scotland, and 
Ireland and show the architectural character of the ancient low-browed 
cottage, the modern home of a well-to-do farmer, and the palatial residence 
of baronial style. 

The view of Bvma House at Faan in the Province of Groningin, the 
Netherlands, was furnished by the Commissioner and represents the resi- 
dence of Ernst de Millinga as it appeared in 1780. This seat has been dis- 

The view of Duxstax was made from an old print found in England by 
Hon. James P. Baxter of Portland, Me. It shows the castle, the village, 
and the market-house. The title on the old print is spelled Diinster, and 
knowing of a town in Somersettshire, England, of this name, the author 
hesitated about publishing the view ; but was assured by Mr. Baxter that 
it represented the Diinsian from which the Scarborough Algers came. If 
this assumption is correct — and the authority is reliable — this picture must 
be of great interest to all who were descended from the Alger family. So 
early settled in the Dunstan of Maine. 

MiLLiKEx Arms. The drawings of coats-of-arms found in this volume 
were made by authorized heraldic descriptions procured from the highest 
official on the subject ; the Lyon-King-at-Arms in Edinburgh, and correctly 
represent all the arms, crests, and mottoes known to have been granted to, 
or claimed bv, the Mullikins, Millikens, or Milligans.

All ancient nations mentioned in history, wore some kind of defensive 
armor when in battle ; sometimes of leather, of brass, of iron and of steel. 
Some of the more luxurious had their coats of mail and helmets richly or- 
namented with gold and silver. In "Bible times" the sacred writers were 
familiar with shields, breastplates and helmets. 

When coats of armor were of thick leather, they were padded with some 
elastic material that would deaden the blow of sword or spear. 

Scale armor was composed of plates of brass, iron, or steel, so formed 
and united as to adapt itself to the necessary movements of the wearer's 

Armor originally only covered the head and shoulders, but in the days 
of William the Conquerer, men of war were clothed from crown to toe in 
armor made of piate, or of steel rings. 

In process of time the old knights and chiefs had devices on their 
shields which represented their prowess and were sometimes significant of 
their family names or place of residence ; then a crest was worn on the 
helmet, well known by the followers of the chief, that could be seen in bat- 
tle, and served as an ensign. These symbols and devises painted on the 
shields were of endless variety, "from the highest things celestial, to the 
lowest things terrestrial." 

Sometimes surcoats made of leather were worn over the armor of pol- 
ished brass or steel, to protect the wearer from the heat of the sun, and the 
devices that had been painted on the shield, were also embroidered on 
their overgarments ; thus the arms became visible to every beholder in bat- 
tle, without the aid of a standard. From this method of displaying emblems 
and armorial bearings, arose the term tv/e ainiure or coat-of arms. 

Many of the ancient monumental effigies in England, represent men 
dressed in armor, covered with a surcoat on which are their armorial bear- 
ings, exactlv corresponding with those on their battle shields. In the mid- 
dle ages, armorial devices had become so systematized that they formed a 
language which the most illiterate could understand. The learned or un- 
learned could read the symbolic picture, which was presented to the eye in 
a thousand ways, till the system was interwoven v.-ith the character and 
teaching of the people. Nearly every mansion was decorated within and 
without with armorial insignia ; the ancestry of a family was known by the 
shields in the upper parts of windows. 

The church favored armorial bearings. The knights took their banners 
to be blessed by t^e priests before going to engage in the Crusade wars, and 
on their return, these trophies, covered with honorable decorative charges, 
were suspended in the churches, and being of a perishable nature, the dis- 
tinctions were in time permanently displayed in the glass of windows, the 
frescoes of the walls, or carved in the stone in the building itself. 

In the infancy of heraldry, every knight assumed whatever armorial 
distinctions he pleased, without consulting his sovereign. Animals, plants, 


imaginary monsters, things artificial, and objects familiar to pilgrims were 
adopted ; and whenever possible, the object chosen was one the name of 
which bore some resemblance in sound to suggest the name of the bearer. 
In the shield of the Appletons are three apples; in that of the Bell family, 
three bells ; in that of the family of Mason, three trowels ; in the arms of 
the Swan family, three swans ; in the escutcheon of the Riddells, three ears 
of rye. 

As coats-of-arms became more numerous, confusion often arose from the 
use, by different knights, of the same symbols; and this confusion was 
augmented by the practice of feudal chiefs in allowing their followers to 
bear their arms in battle as a mark of honor. In this way different coats- 
of-arms so closely resembled each other, that it was imperative, for dis- 
tinction's sake, that some restrictions and regulations should be laid clown 
respecting the character, number, and position of the figures represented 
on shields. This necessity led, in the course of time, to the development 
of a regular system of heraldry, and the ancient rolls show that the process 
was going on in the 13th and 14th centuries. 

In England, the assumption of arms by private individuals was first 
restrained by a proclamation from Henrv V, vrhich prohibited every one 
who had not borne arms at Agincourt to assume them, except in virtue of 
inheritance or grant from the crown. To enforce this rule, herald's visita- 
tions through the countries were instituted, all persons claiming the right 
to bear arms being warned to assemble at some stated place in the district, 
and to bring with them all arms, crests and pedigrees for examination by 
the herald's deputy, and present evidence of their genuineness. So strict 
were these laws regarding coats-of-arms at that time, that a man who had 
assumed certain armorial bearings without proper authority, lost one of his 
ears as a penalty. 

In the united Kingdom of Great Britain, no one is entitled to bear 
arms without a hereditary claim be descent, or a grant from the competent 
authority, this jurisdiction being executed by the Herald's College in Eng- 
land, the Lyon Court in Scotland, and the College of Arms in Ireland. It 
is illegal to use without authority, not only a coat-of-arms, but a crest. 

The passion for outward distinction is so deeply implanted in human 
nature, that in America, where all differences of rank are repudiated, men 
and women are found assuming heraldic devices, and the interest in the 
practice has so increased that hundreds of families have framed coats-of- 
arms hanging on the walls of their houses, with shields, crests, and mottoes 
engraved on their jewelry, displayed on their stationery and painted on the 
doors of their carriages in imitation of the aristocracy of Great Britain. 
Some of these arms were legally borne by the ancestors of our American 
families in the mother country, and others are spurious, having been orig- 
inally drawn or painted by men who early canvassed New England with 
books containing what purported to be pictures of coats-of-arms, crests, and 
appendages granted to families in England and Scotlanfl, which they claimed 
our American families had a right to bear by virtue of possessing the same, 
or a similar surname.

MiLLAN'GES (France), Simon Milhinges the distinguished citizen of Bor- 
deaux, France, had produced for him a coat-of-arms abounding in angels 
bearing palms as emblems of victory or success. This error was attributed 
to a mistake in spelling the surname, making it '' Mille-anges " or. in 
English, a thousand aiigcis. 

There was once a tradition, now exploded, making a remote ancestor. 
of the family slay so many of his enemies in battle that he was knighted 
by his sovere'ign on the field as Sir Mylligaunt, meaning a thousand gloves, 
or the thousand handed. 

An authentic record exists in the Department of Mss., in the National 
Library of France, of a coat-of-arms borne by John de Milligen and Caezar 
de Milligen, who were citizens of a foreign country the name of which was 
not legibly written. 

A coat-of-arms long in possession of the descendents of Samuel Milliken 
of the Scarborough (Maine) family is said to have three castles in a blue 
shield, and the family tradition is as follows: That Sir Hugh Milliken, the 
ancestor of that family was conspicuously connected with the taking of 
certain castles, that he received the honor of Knighthood and had this 
coat-of-arms granted to him. Capt. Isaac Milliken, who was a master 
mariner in early days, is authority for the foregoing statement. The 
authorities in the Lyon Office at Edinburgh find no record of such transac- 
tion nor of such a coat-of-arms.

The use of established surnames cannot be traced backward to a period 
much earlier than the middle of the tenth century. The tirst came into 
use in Normandy, France, and at the coming of William the Conqueror 
(io66) were quite generally introduced into England. Many of the Nor- 
man adventurers who assisted in the Conquest had taken the of their 
places of residence, or of villages and hamlets near their ancestral cha- 
teaux, names that were used with the French preposition i/f before them. 
Nearly all of the soldiers of William's army returned to their homes in Nor- 
mandy, and bestowed the lands awarded them in England upon their 
younger sons, who came over and settled upon them, giving to these new 
estates their own surnames. When the Norman-French language, so popular 
after the Conquest, disappeared from England, the prefix i/t- was almost 
universally discarded, unless retained for suphony, and the English word 
"of" used as a substitute. 

The Scotch have a more expressive designation which they applv to 
families who have a territorial surname; they say, '-of that ilk.'' In Scot- 
land, surnames were seldom used till the tw-elfth centurv, and were tor a 
long time variable. The assumption of surnames by the common people 
is everywhere of a later date than that of so-called gentle families. In 
England, the number of surnames is about forty thousand, or one to every 
five hundred individuals. In Scotland, there are far fewer surnames in 
proportion to the population. 

Surnames may be divided into several classes, as territorial, character- 
istic, mechanical and personal. The names liurbank, Burnham, Bradbury, 
Fairfield, Fairbanks, Mansfield, Merryheld, Killburn, Swinburn, Washburn, 
Woodbridge and Woodbury are territorial or local in origin. The names 
Carpenter, Turner, Wheelright, Cartright, Brewer, Boulter, Baxter, Thatcher. 
Gardner, Goldsmith, Chaplain, Chamberlain and Usher, were all derived 
from the occupation of ancestors of those families. Among the surnames 
taken from some physical characteristic of the individual are Walker, 
Spinger, Jumper, Armstrong, Longstaff, Lockheart, r)ouglass, Broadhead, 
Longfellow and Crookshanks. 

Besides those surnames mentioned there is another class called patro- 
nymics often formed by a Christian name with that of son or its equivalent 
added. This form of family names prevails to a greater extent in Scandi- 
navian countries: hence, we have Anderson, children of Andrew; Hender- 
son, the son of Henry; Malcolmson, sfjii of Malcolm, and Peterson, son of 

Writers of equal claims to scholarship and to antiquarian research have 
given various opinions respecting the origin and significance of the sur- 
names Milligan, Millican, Millikan, Milliken, MuUiken and Mulligan, some 
of the theories advanced being purely fanciful and without any documen- 
tary evidence to prove them. If we are to find the m.eaning of such sur- 
names we must trace them backward to their source. 


The late James Milliken Esq., of New York and Eellefont, Pa., who had 
given this subject much attention and had spent considerable sums of monev 
in trying to discover the derivation and meaning of the surname, found it 
to have been of Saxon-Norman origin and spelled originallv '■' Mi/Zi/igas^' 
and produced by the Normans as ^^Mi/la/iges,'^ meaning Mill-manor, or the 
manor-house by the mill. Passing from Saxony to the Netherlands where 
cadets of this family established themselves at an early date in history, we 
find the surname produced as " Millinga," •' Milligen," and " Millingen, ' 
and there is a village named Milligen in that country. From these earliest 
forms used by the Saxon and Norman ancestors of the family the name was 
modified in France to " Milanges," and " Miligen " as found on old manu- 
scripts in the- National Library in Paris. In early times all surnames such 
as Chamberlain in which the letter i was used were spelled Chamberlayne. 

According to registers of sasine, in the Register House, Edinburgh, of 
date 14 May 1633, there is mentioned James Myllighan (Miiligan), son of 
James Myllighan, of Blackmyre, Galloway. The numerous families in Cum- 
berland, England, have unformily spelleei their surname Mi /I icon. In the 
south of Scotland, families have used the forms Milliken and Miiligan, hut 
in the northern shires some have spelled their surnames MuUikin and Mul- 

Crossing the channel to the north of Ireland we find numerous families 
who originated in the Lowland counties of Scotland using the same ortho- 
graphy, viz. : — Milliken and Miiligan. 

In the broad dialect spoken by the Lowland Scotch, milk is pronounced 
mulk, and any native of the Border shires, where so many of the families 
under notice resided, Milliken would be called MiiHikin, and Miiligan Mul- 
ligan. Where an Englishman or an American would say to his dairy-maid, 
"milk the cows," a Scotchman would sav : " Mulk the Kye," or "Kine." 
This fact may account, in part, for the existence 'in Scotland, at an early 
day, of families named Millikin, .Miiligan, and MuUikin ; and after the re- 
moval of families to Ireland there was the change, permanently, from Mul- 
likin to Mulligan. 

We now present the earliest recorded forms of this surname found in 
the old documents of Great Britain. In his dictionary of surnames Eards- 
ley mentions z.Johii Mulkyn in Suffolk, England, of date 1273, "who prob- 
ably came from the Low Countries." He assumes that this was an isolated 
instance of the surname with the suffix ki/i, and that was only a sharpened 
form of the Irish Miiligan; but he furnishes no proof by citing the various 
orthographies that would necessarily appear during the gradual transition. 
And from what Irishman dv^elling in the Low. Countries, the Netherlands, 
so early as A.D. 1273, did this Dutchman, John Mulkyn, derive his name? 
Bardsley did not know that there was a record in the Lyon Office, P'dinburgh, 
of 3./a})ics My/ikyn who was appointed moneytavious for life by King David 
II. in 1360, called a Florentine, and of a Donating M^ilihync, who m 1364, 
was paid for making ornaments for the same monarch. Like many others 
who are quoted as authorities on surnames, Bardsley, governed by some 
principle of etymology, was mistaken and his assumption is groundless. 
Families of Miiligan were resident of the Border counties of Scotland two 
hundred years before the name appeared in Ireland, to which country it was 
carried at the plantation of Ulster, i6o3-i62o. But Bardsley continues by 


saying: "The following entry, however, practically settles the question, 
being a halfway house between Milligan and Millikin, viz. : — '1798- Married. 
John Chandler and Susanna Millican of St. George, Hanover Square." ' He 
probably did not know that this form of spelling was peculiar to the families 
in Northumberland, and Cumberland, imgland, where they had been domi- 
ciled for two centuries before the marriage date quoted by him, and was a 
modified fashion of the name Millikan used by a family in the South of 

To satisfy the curiosity of the families who bear some form of this name 
I will quote brierty from a few of those who have published books on the 

Barber. " British P'amily Names." Mulligan, Irish, servant to the bald- 
headed man, i.e. the priest. Milican. A local name in Scotland, or Dutch 
Milligan. Miliken, Flemish, Milecan, personal name diminitive of Miles. 

Maxwell. "Scottish Names of Scotland." Millegan Gaelic, Molla- 
ghan, a hillock. 

JoHNSTOX. "Place Names of Scotland." Milliken is perhaps Gaelic 
Maologan, little shaveling, as in surnames Milligan and Mulligan. 

Lower. "Dictionary of Family Names." Milligan-O'Milligan. an an- 
cient Irish name. Milliken, Millikin, Milligen, corruptions of Milligan. 

Guppv. " Homes of family names in Great Britain." Millican-Milli- 
kin, Cumberland and Westmoreland. Milligan rare. Milliken is characteristic 
of Northumberland. 

Ferguson. " Teutonic Names System," Milliken, Diminutive of Mel 
or Mill, to beat. 

O'Hart. "Irish Pedigrees." Maolagan (Irish, the bald little man) his 
son ; aquo O'Maolagain, anglaised Mulligan and Molyneux. 

It will be seen by the foregoing quotations that the authorities (?) do 
not agree. From such a variety the family may take their choice. So much 
from books. 

We do not find Milican among the local names of Scotland in the Gaze- 

Molyneux is not English, but is a French form of spelling Milliken. 

The traditional theories held by some of the Scottish families are in- 
genius, and may have a logical surface but are without documentary proof. 
One statement may be summarized as foUows : One of the early Kings of 
Scotland (name and date not given), required his subjects to plant trees 
for ornament and shade beside of all the principal roads of his Kingdom. 
These small saplings were called "canes" and as they were of the same 
distance from^ each other as the milestones they were called "mile-canes," 
and the superintendent of this arboreal employment was designated "The 
Milecane " ; and this was afterwards modified or changed to Millican and 
became the surname of his family. But the name Millican is not a Scotch, 
but an English form of spelling. 

Another traditional theory. In the north of Scotland, cows were called 
Kine, as they were in "Bible times," and when the dairymaids brought them 
home at milking time, they called "come Mull, come Mull"; and mothers 
speaking of them to their children in nursery days, called them " Mully 
Kine," a name which, tradition says, was afterward applied to a cowherd, 
and in course of time, was adopted as a family name. This is made the 


more plausible from the fact that a coat-of-arms was granted in Scotland- 
no date given— to a family surnamed Mullikine ; a name identical in spell- 
ing with that applied to the cows. 

Another has assumed that the name Milliken was derived from the em- 
ployment of the milkmaid when milking the cows slightly changed to Mill- 
kine and Milliken. 

Leaving all such fanciful and traditionary theories relating to the devia- 
tion of the familv cognomen, we go back to solid historic ground of docu- 
mentary statements \vhere we hnd such primitive forms as Mulkyn and 
Milekxne, aud from these by an easy transition the names IMullikin and 
Milliken were evolved. In p'assing from one nation to another and, conse- 
quently, from one language to another, many surnames have been changed, 
and this statement applies to the families under notice. 

XuTE Thomas Milliken of Isle Magee, Ireland, informs me that in the Province of 

Ulster, the Presbyterian families spell their surname ■' Milliken " and •' Millikin," \^hile 
the Episcopalians' spell theirs " Milligan." Author. 

The earliest emigrants of the family known to have settled in the Ameri- 
can colonies were lames MuUikin and Patrick Mullikin. evidently brothers, 
who came with Lord Baltimore and sat down on lands in Maryland, as the 
Dorchester countv records prove, in 1654. This family, as well as their 
kindred in Virginia and South Carolina, have spelled the name " Mullikin." 
A branch of the Scottish family settled in Boston, Mass.. as early as 16S0, 
have since spelled the name "'Mulliken " : while some of their kindred re- 
moving to Maine, have almost always used the form ■' Milliken.'' 

The familv from Castledawson, 'Ireland, early planted in Washington, 
Mass., and in'Middleton, X.H., spelled their names '' Millikan," and " Milli- 
ken " but the latter was adopted only by the New Hampshire branches. 
Families descended from William Millikan, a Quaker, who removed from 
Chester County, Pa., to Randolph Co., N.C. in 175S, have nearly all followed 
their ancestors form of " Millikan." 

The families early settled in Georgia, and their kindred in Tennessee 
and other of the Southern states, evidently came from Cumberland, Eng- 
land, and spell the name " Millican." However, tradition says the name 
was early changed from " Milligan." 

One 'familv, and one only, a. branch of the Maine stock, rem.oving to 
Georgia earlv'in the fifties, have omitted the middle letter and spell their- 
names " Mili'kin " : an action to be regretted. 

On some early records and gravestones in Massachusetts I believe the 
name " Mullicken " has been found, but the family have not, for genera- 
tions, varied from •' Mulliken ". 

• The changes of this, like all surnames, are easily accounted for as the 
cadets of the lamilv passed from one country to anot'her and, consequently, 
their names from one language to another. This family designation may 
be traced, with its possessors, from its original Saxon and Norman forms 
of Millingas and Millanges through all of its mutations in France, Eng- 
land, Scotland, Ireland and the American and British Colonies, to its present 
varied forms of orthographv ; and the conspicuous and stereotyped character- 
istics of the numerous branches of the family bear witness to the unmistak- 
able relationship between them. 


On old tombstones, in old documents, in heraldic records, in vital statis- 
tics and in books, this family name has been found in the following forms 
of orthography : 


Myllykix, Millyk-yn, Millikyx, Mylligyx, Mylligham, Millixtox, Mil-

In his attempt to produce an authentic history of this ancient, numerous 
and widely distributed family the compiler has employed every available 
means to aid him in tracing it to its origin. 

No circumstantial account of the remote ancestry, before the family was 
known by a distinctive title, can be given. They were derived from the 
Saxon branch of the Teutonic race and early assumed the name Ml/Ii/igas. 
The early history of the Saxons is contradictory and uncertain. They in- 
habited a country remarkable for its romantic natural scenery and fertility, 
and when at home in times of peace they were a pastoral and agricultural 
people. They cultivated the cereals and flax and had numerous flocks and 
herds upon the hills and plains. Their simple clothing was homespun of 
linen and wool. Their extensive forests afforded abundant timber for their 
dwellings ; their manner of life was primitive and wholesome. 

The Saxons, however, like their northern neighbors and kinsmen, the 
Scandinavians, were a restless, roving, and warlike people, and during their 
predatory excursions in midoeval times distributed representatives of their 
race throughout nearly every part of Continental Europe. Among the 
Saxon rovers who v.ent from their native country, cadets of the Millingas 
family established themselves in the Netherlands where the surname is 
found in early and modern documents. They figured in the Provinces of 
Groningen, Friesland and Overyssel, and some of them were the subjects 
of royal favor and v.ere granted heraldic bearings as honorary rewards for 
services rendered in oil^icial stations. 

Branches of the family still exist in the Netherlands and bear the sur- 
names ■Millinga, Milligen, and Miilingen ; all evolved from the original 
Saxon form. 

The first of whom we have found authentic record in the Netherlands 
was Capt. Ernst Milling a who, according to a bill of sale found in the 
Groningen Provincial archives, of date 15th November, 1605, buys a house 
situated in the Poelestraat in the town of Groningen. He also came in 
possession of a landed estate at Eaan in the same pro\ince, known in the 
documents of the 17th century as the " Millinga-head." At the same time 
he took possession of a neighboring house, Byma at Faan. In the year 
1613, he had the church built at Faan and a sculptured stone fixed in the 
eastern corner t>f the building is a memorial of the event. 

NiCLAES Van Millinga, son of the preceding, married in 1621, Gelwer 
Hillebrandes, and was acknowledged in the registers of the Reformed 
church of Groningen in 1622, as the proprietor of Byma at Faan. He was 
also mentioned in the chronicles of \'ander Houwe in 1636, as proprietor 
and tenant of that house. 

Sir Niclaks Van Millinga, was Deputy of the town and country in 
1628, 1629, 1630, 1G41, 1646. He must have died between 164S and 1651, 
because his widow purchased a tomb in Martin's church, Groningen, 19th 


July 1651. He had two sons born in 1632 and 1633; and they were re- 
corded as students in the University of Groningen iSth Oct. 1650, as follows: 
*'Erxestus a Millixga, Omlandus, Aetatis iS. phil. 
"Jacobus a Millinga, Omlandus, Aetatis 17. phil." 

Erxestus Van Millinga married first, Anna Grays Lellens, and sec- 
ond, October 1666, Lucretia Farges who was born in 161S, and his brother, 
Jacobus Van Millinga was a witness. He, Ernestus, was Deputy of town 
and country in 1668, and in 167 1 he was member of the Court of Finance. 
He died between 167 1 and 1675. In 167S, a certain Sir Hugo Unico 
Enens, whose mother was probably a sister of Ernest and Jacob, inherited 
the castle of Byma. ' » 

The beforementioned families were probably related to one Claes Mil- 
linga who was the Burgomaster of Dalen in the province of Denthe. There 
was also in the province of Friesland a branch of this Millinga family bear- 
ing the same coat-of-arms, but their name appears but once in the heraldic 
records there. See Arms of Millinga in this volume. 

Burgomaster's Letter. The following reply to the author's inquiry is 
of interest: "I report that there died here Oct. 7, 1S95, Gerret Millig'en.

Normal School, and Knight of the Order of Orange-Xassau, Husband' of

_ XoTE--The Milliken family at large will ever be indebted to the late Hon. James ^ril- 
liken of New York — formerly known as of Bellefont, Pennsylvania — who at much pains 
and considerable expense procured much of the information now incorporated in the in- 
troductory section of this volume which relates to the origin and early generations of the 
family. For many years he had been a diligent searcher for evervthiiig that would throw 
light upon the history of the Kuropean bran'ches of the clan ; had visited the localities in 
Scotland and Ireland where his aincestors had lived and had assembled copious notes re- 
lating to the subject which, in 1895, he placed in the author's hands. As soon as he was 
advised of an attempt to compile and publish a genealogy of the numerous American 
branches of the family, he instituted a thorough search, conducted by an experienced ar- 
chivest and copyist, in the great libraries of Paris, Eordeux and Ronen, in France, which 
resulted in the discovery of documents from which many interesting historical and bio- 
graphical particulars relating to the families in that countrv were extracted. Mr. Miliiken 
employed every available means to guard against errors and verify these statements and 
pronounced them " perfectly reliable." He also called the search '-'exhaustive." but much 
additional data has .-ince been discovered, both on the Continent and in Great Britain, by 
the author. 

*The author of this volume opened correspondence with fllizabeth Van Milligen of 
Groningen, and requested more particulars concerning her ancestors and present family 
connections, but this request was not granted. He also solicited the loan of her late 
father's photograph for reproduction in this book, but she had some scruples against its 
appearance in an American publication, believing her family not to be in any way related 
to those of the same name in Kngland, and feeling quite sure of its being named for a 
village in the Netherlands. This theory is not supported by the early documents, and the 
\ lUage probalily derived its name from the fa.mily ; a not uncommon event. She intro- 
duced the name of a distinguished physician now in the service of the Sultan of Turkey, 
resident in Constantinople, named Millitr^^en. 


In passing from Saxony to France the name Millinga and Millingas was 
produced as Millanges. but the history of that country attords no evidence 
that families bearing this or cognate titles were ever prolific during their 
early or later residence there ; and but few persons figured in the annals now 
extant. If descendents of the Saxon-Xorman families of Millingas or Mil- 
langes exist in France at the present time, they reside in some agricultural 
or obscure province. The following interesting items were procured by an 
exhaustive and expensive search in the Department of Manuscripts of the 
National Library of France. 

SiMOX Millanges, a distinguished citizen and eminent scholar, de- 
scended from an ancient Saxon .Ancestry, was b. at Vert, in the Province of 
Limousin, France, about the year 1540. and died at Bordeux in 1623 at 
the venerable age of 83 years. He was a professor of belle-lettres in the 
college of GuyeAne, an expert among the grammarians of the realm in the 
Latin language, and was thoroughly versed in Greek. In 1572, he founded 
in the city of Bordeux a printing establishment of the first order and soon 
obtained great celebrity. The jurists of the realm assisted him financially ; 
he had bestowed upon him '-lettres de Bourjoisee," and he and his descen- 
dents were exempted from all duties of imposition which burdened the 
people of Bordeux at that period. He was named printer to the Kingdom 
in 1620, and his name was given to a street in the city. He had two sons, 
James Millanges and William Millanges, who continued the printing 
business in Bordeux long after the death of their father. 

The Saxon name Millingas, produced as Millanges in Normandy was 
the cause of much misunderstanding and humor,- for in consequence of a 
similar pronunciation it was supposed to be synonymous with Mille-anges, a 
thousand angels, and the distinguished citizen of Bordeux had produced for 
him coats-of-arms abounding in angels bearing palms as emblems of victory, 
with absurd mottos to heighten the humor. 

The following found in the archives of the National Library of France, 
proves the existence of the family as known by a name almost identical with 
the ancient Saxon orthography: Mr. Ciiristophe Milingas and Peter 
Milingas, court lawyers, and Master John Milingas, were plaintiifs in 
two suits of law for the recover}- of a portion of their mother's estate : one 
suit being of date 13th Apr., 1669, and the other of date 27th Jan., 1672, 
Their sisters Frances Milingas and Anabel Milingas, were associated 
with them in subsequent proceedings, both suits being based on transaction 
in 1643. 

Id the same great repository of valuable documents was discovered the 
reference to a coat-of-arms assigned to John de Milligen and Caesar de 
MiLLiGEN who lived in the time of Wiiliam the Conqueror, but from a district 
of a foreign country, the nam.e in the record being quite allegible, and a 
clause in the reference seems to have been in ridicule of the pretentious 
title of Caesar. 

At the time of the Norman Conquest, members of the Millanges and 
Milligen families crossed the sea and established themselves on the English 
and Scottish Border — in Cumberland, Northumberland, Ayrshire, Dumfne- 
shire, and Gallowshire, where they have ever since lived and multiplied. 

In writing the history of this family after their settlement in Great 
Britain, we are confronted by a problem difncult to soive, and the result of 



an extended investigation has diffused no additional light upon the sub- 
ject. We have stated that the family was represented in the border Shires 
of England and Scotland soon after the Conquest; this fact is abundantly 
proven by the frequent occurrence of the name in the early land registers. 
But we have found record in the documents deposited at the Lyon Ortice in 
Edinburg, of a James Milevkex, designated a Florentine, who was appointed 
by King David II. in 1360, Moiutavioiis (coin m.aker and royal Banker) 
for life; and in 1364, one Donatius Mulekyx was paid for making orna- 
ments for the same King. We know that the Florentines, being expert 
workmen in the precious metals and stones, were at that period in great de- 
mand at the courts of Europe, but we naturally wish to rind out how these 
Mileykens under the royal patronage of Scotland were related to the Mil- 
ligans and Millikens settled on the Border: yes, and we look still farther 
backward and inquire about the origin of those Florentine families. Were 
they derived from the same old Saxon stock .' And we now call the reader's 
attention to an earlier record which produces the name of a John Mulkyn 
in the county of Suft"olk, England, 1273. Bardsley says this is an isolated 
name and probably came from the "Low Countries." 

If these Florentine and Low Country representatives of the race left de- 
scendents we may plausibly assume that the Milligans, Millikens, Millicans 
and Mullikens of England and Scotland had a double origin. At anv rate 
the old form of spelling the surname and the orthography in the record of 
an early grant of arms in Scotland (no date) furnishes a hint that the Flor- 
entine ^lilekyns were subjects of royal favor and received heraldic honors 
for their services.. 

We must now pause in our treatment of the more remote ancestral his- 
tory of the family and turn our attention to the condition of those v/ho es- 
tablished homes in Scotland. Hero we may stand on solid historical 
ground and present an account of domestic life and incidents of great in- 
terest. They appear on record rirst in Gallowayshire which early comprised 
parts of Ayrshire and Dumfrieshire, where, after the change of boundaries, 
the families of Milliken appear. Galloway in the southwestern corner of 
Scotland, is rich in romantic scenery and historical association; possessing 
a remarkable combination of sterile grandeur and Arcadian beauty, and is 
favored with a climate of mildness. 

Here the Milligans and Millikens were shepherds and small farmers. A 
family of the name comprising many generations and from which many 
branches and sub-branches have sprung, was settled for more than two 
hundred years, from 1490, at the farm of Blackmyre, and the names of 
successive proprietors of this old agricultural and pastoral estate are of fre- 
quent occurrence in the early local land records. Their herds and tiocks 
were scattered over the green hills and their sons were trained to handle 
sheep and cattle. Surrounded by the wild grandeur environing their homes, 
those Milligans listened to the lowing of kine, the bleating of lambs and 
the tinkle of sheep-bells for many generations. They were in constant 
touch with nature and studied her in all her moods, ^ioreover, those were 
godly m.en. They read God's law in creation and in His written word. 
They carried their bibles to the hills, and seated upon high shelving rock, 
under the shelter of some ancient tree, wrapped in their coarse shepherd's 
plaids, they perused the inspired volumes until they were familiar with its 


contents. What wonder that such men were devout worshippers of the 
Infinite ? They were priests in their own families, laid down holy precepts 
for the government of their children, and their own godlv lives were silent 
exponents of the gospel. Twenty generations reared in such homes and 
educated under such influences had stamped upon them the indelible seal 
of faith ; a faith that stood them in good stead amid the experiences of 
suffering for righteousness' sake, through which many of them were called 
to pass in the days that tried men's souls. 

The families of Milliken and Milligan were among the most strenuous 
adherents of the Covenant ; they were of the extreme branch of Presby- 
terians and the faithful followers of Richard Cameron. When driven from 
the churches by the preaching of the papists they resorted to the fields and 
mountains to listen to their own chosen preachers. Around many a fireside 
in the Millikens humble homes, families of neighbors assembled to study 
God's word and sing the psalms of the Shepherd King of Israel. These 
persons were at length driven from their homes and wandered with their 
wives and children amid storm and floods over mountains and mosshaggs ; 
they suffered from hunger, cold, nakedness and wounds ; they slept in dens 
and caves and were hunted down like wild beasts. Their zeal made them 
the objects of intense hatred by Claverhouse and he watched with vigilance 
for every opportunity to wreak vengeance upon them. 

The Register of the Privy Council of Scotland contains the names of 
seven Milligans who, in 1637, signed the petition agaiiist the service-book 
of the prelates ; they were as follows : 

James Milligan in Arndaroche. 

John Milligan in Cairnmono. 

John Milligan in Crossmichael. 

Richard Milligan in Crossmichael. 

Robert ^Milligan in Broigmarke. 

Robert Milligan in Holms of Dalquharne. 

Roger Milligan in Arndaroche. 
These men and many others were signers of the Covenant* the follow- 
ing year (1638) and tradition says some of them as old men, made the 
journey on foot to Edinburgh and inscribed their names with their own 

* The National Covenant was signed on the 28th of February, 1638, in the Greyfrairs 
churchyard, Edinburgh, and continued until 8 o'clock in the evening. This "fair parch- 
ment above an ell square," was laid upon the broad horizontal gravestones in the burying- 
ground and signed by as many as could approach. Hundreds added to their names the 
words, " till death," and some opened veins in their arms and wrote their names with their 
own blood. Some wept and many shouted for joy. 

XoTE — It was once the melancholy privilege of the compiler of this volume to make a 
pilgrimage to the localities mentioned in this historical sketch. He stood upon the green 
hills of Galloway where, more than four centuries before, the Milligans lived and pastured 
their flocks ; he gazed downward upon the dreary moors and moss-haggs where they fol- 
lowed Cameron and where they were hunted like wild beasts by the relentless Claver- 
house; he visited Airdmoss and Bothwell bridge, where so many of God's saints were 
slaughtered; he wandered sadly amid the ancient graves of the (ireyfriars churchyard 
where the immortal Covenant was signed and where, afterwards, so many were imprisoned 
to suffer and die ; he crossed the turbulent waters of the North Sea and beheld the lonely 
graves of the shipwrecked Covenanters upon the Orcadian coast ; and in every place once 
marked by the feet of those godly men and women, his fancy, supplementing the verbal 
hiitory of their sufferings, vividly portrayed iu realistic mental pictures the awful scenes. 


blood upon the Covenant in the Greyfriars churchyard, and their names, or 
the names of Covenanting descendents, appear in the lists of those who 
subsequently suffered under Claverhouse. 

Some of the family were with Cameron at Airdsmoss* and Bothwell 
bridge, and among the 1,200 who were made prisoners and confined in 
Greyfriars churchvard for tive months with no covering but the canopy of 
heaven, and no place of rest but the damp ground between the graves, the 
Millikens suffered. Of these, some died and a few escaped, but 250 were, 
on the 15th of November, put on board a ship at Leith Roads to be ban- 
ished to Barbadoes and New Jersey. They were in charge of a monster 
in human form named Patterson. The space alloted them was so small that 
only those dangerously ill were permitted to recline. None were permitted 
to see their friends, and but scanty food was given them. A sum of money 
collected for them was not given them, and they were treated with cruelty 
beyond description. 

After a stormy passage the vessel reached the Orkney Isles on the loth 
of December and" was driven by the fury of the tempest upon the coast. 
The prisoners entreated to be landed and conffned in jail, but the hatches 
were battered down to make their escape impossible. The vessel parted 
amidships and the mast fell upon the rocks. When some of the prisoners 
would have escaped they were pushed off by the . sailors, and only forty 
reached the land. The bodies that were washed ashore were carried by 
the Orcadian fishermen to a piece of ground called Scarvating, and there 
buried. Only a few rough stones taken from the sea-beach, marked their 

Three persons named jSIilligan under sentence of banishment are known 
to have been among those wrecked on the coast of Orkney at Deerness. 
These were kinsmen. 

Robert Millig.\x of the parish of Glencairn in Dumfrieshire, perished, 
and was buried at Deerness, Orkney. 

Thomas Milligax of the parish of Closeburn, in Nithsdale, Dumfrie- 
shire, perished, and was buried at Deerness, Orkney. 

JoHX AIiLLiGAX of the parish of Glencairn, in Nithsdale, in Dumfrie-

One of the " Martyrs of the ocean wave," was the widow of a John Mil- 
ligan, a zealous champion of the Covenant. She was a woman of remark- 
able faith and fortitude as the following account will show: 

"Margaret MacLaughlan, widow of John Milligan, aged sixty-three 
years, a pattern of piety and virtue, was a zealous Christian who, having 

*AiRiJMoss is a morass in Ayrshire where on July 20th, 1680, there was a sharp bat- 
tle between sixty Coventers under Richard Cameron and a detachment of dragoons, and 
where this good man fell, At the spot where the strife was the most deadly, a monument 
consisting of a large, Hat stone, marked with the names of the Coventers who fell, and 
with figures of an open l^ible and a hand grasping a sword, was laid down about fifty 
years after the event. A modern monument has superseded this. The following lines 
are familiar to readers of Scottish poetry : 

" In a dream of the night I was wafted away, 
To the moorland of mist where the martyrs lay ; 
Where Cameron's sword and his Bible are seen. 
Engraved on the stone where the heather grows green." 


refused to take the oath of abjuration was taken by the soldiers while de- 
voutly worshipping God in her own house, and being indicted of being at 
Bothwell Bridge and Airmoss (with Cameron) and twenty tield conven- 
ticles,* and as many house conventicles, after a long and distressing impris- 
onment 'without refreshment or tire, bed and diet,' was sentenced to death 
by drowning." The following account from Wodrow's Cloud of Wit/iesscs 
may be of interest : 

"Upon the nth day of ^[ay 16S4, Margaret Laughlan in the parish of 
Kirkinner (Wigtonshire ), and Margaret \\'ilson in Glenvarnock in the shire 
of Galloway, being sentenced to death for their non-compliance with pre- 
lacy, and refusing to swear the oath of abjuration, by the laird of Lagg, 
Captain Strachan, Col. David Graham and Provost Cultroon, who com- 
manded them to receive their sentence upon their knees which they re- 
fusing, were pressed down by force till they had received it : and so were 
by their order tied to a stake v.ithin the seamark, in the water of Blednock, 
near Wigton, where, after they had made them wrestle hard with the waves ; 
which flowing, swelled on them by degrees ; and has sometimes thrust them 
under water and pulled them out again to see if they would resent ; they 
enduring death with undaunted courage, yielded up their spirits to God." 

XuTE — During the persecution of the Covenanters eighteen thousand persons suffered 
death or some form of penal attiiction on account of their faith. Nearly two thousand 
were banished to the various plantations, of whom several hundred perished by ship- 
wreck or cruel treatment. About three thousand suffered all the horrors of imprison- 
ment in the most loathsome dungeons, and many were subjected to tortures shocking to 
humanity. Seven thousand went into voluntary e.^ile. Six hundred and eighty were 
killed in encounters with soldiers. Five hundred were put to death in cold blood, and 
four hundred murdered under forms of law. Multitudes were reduced to circum.stanccs 
of abject misery ; and multitudes perished through cold, hunger, and fatigue while wan- 
deiing on the mountains and moors, or hiding in dens and caves of the earth. 

Early Scotch Homes. At the period when the Millikens first sat down 
in the Border shires of Scotland they were uneducated and lived in a very 
primitive and rude condition. From a monk who visited the locality in 
the fourteenth century we learn that their houses were built of rough stones 
without lime, the roofs thatched with straw held down by ropes and stones, 
or covered with turf. There were no glass windows, the light being ad- 
mitted through neats bladder which was stretched over a small frame. 
Galloway cowskins were used as a substitute for doors. There were no 
lums (chimneys) and tires were kindled on flat stones laid upon the earth. 
The peat-reek accumulated on the thatch in the roof, and during rainfall 
dissolved and ran down in inky streams upon the occupants. The clothing 
was of the coarsest homespun wool. Leather aprons were worn by the 
men. Food consisted principally of meat and wind-dried fish, bur bread 
was eaten as a dainty. The males were of low^ stature, but bold and strong ; 
the females were fair and "given to the pleasures of love." Their horses 
were small, ambling nags, ungroomed, and driven without bridle-reins. The 
cattle were small, of black color and hornless. The sheep, pasturing on 
the hills, were dwarfed but hardy. All were shepherds or herdsmen. 

The scene within the house was rude and semi-civilized. A long, high- 
backed seat near the fire accomodated the family. A small table of deals 

* Religious services held bv the Nonconformists' or Covenanters. 


stood against the wall. Culinary utensils were few. The spinning wheel 
and loom were in every house. Savage sheep-dogs were allowed nearly as 
much libertv within doors as members of the family. Caddy lambs had 
pens in the house-corners, and domestic fowls roosted in the roof. Strings 
of dried fish were suspended from rafters ; shepherds plaids hung on lines 
at the wallside. 

Such were the material conditions of the shepherd farmers four cen- 
turies after the ancestors of the family left Saxony ; but two centuries later, 
during the days of the Covenanting troubles, they had advanced from this 
semi-civilized state to a more comfortable condition of rural existence. 
They were then dwelling in low-walled houses built of stone and lime, laid 
by masonry. As was the general custom at that time, even in the towns, 
and continued in many parts of Scotland, the roofs were thatched with 
straw. Strong doors and small glass windows were afforded. The floors 
were earthern. Fires were still built upon broad. Hat hearthstones. Heavy 
plank seats were placed at the wallside. The beds were built in form like 
a ship's berth, and permanently fixed. The food was prepared in the most 
simple manner and was coarse but wholesome. Clothing for male and 
female was of linen and wool, homespun and homewoven. Washing was done 
at the burnsides, and heavy fabrics were beaten with paddles. 

When the inhuman persecution of the non-conformists was ended by 
the bold stroke of William the prince of Orange, a few Millikens who 
had survived their wanderings and sufferings emerged from their hiding- 
places among the mountains of Galloway and came back to their homes ; 
and a writer who was conversant with the facts informs us that these re- 
turning exiles were almost naked ; that the hair and beard of the men remain- 
ing unshorn was long, unkempt and matted ; that the women, prematurely 
old from exposure and hardships, were clad in filthy rags and in no condi- 
tion for public appearance. Tangled masses of hair fell heavily upon their 
shoulders. Children born in the wilderness were unclothed and famished. 

Around their humble hearthstones these old Christian heroes, when 
snowy locks adorned their temples and fell upon their bending shoulders, 
related again and again to their grandchildren their experiences of suffering. 
They had listened to the preaching of Knox and Meh'ille ? and to the trum- 
pet voice of Richard Cameron as he stood upon the hillsides of Galloway 
proclaiming the gospel of the Covenant : and these descendents were taught 
to regard the characters of those who followed this Christian martyr with 
unbounded veneration. Inspired by the same spirit and following the same 
faith, the duties of family worship and religious instruction were regularly 
attended to, and the Bible was regarded as the most important volume in 
the family library. Their favorite literature consisted of such works as 
Woodrows "Cloud of Witnesses," and Howies "Scotch Worthies." 

The Millikens ix Irelaxd. As a majority of the families named 
Milliken, Milligan and Mulliken in Canada, Australia and the United States 
are descended from a Scotch-Irish ancestry we cannot do justice to our 
treatment of their history without giving a comprehensive account of those 
who early established homes in Ireland. 

In the year 1603, King James commenced the undertaking of planting 
six counties in the Province of Ulster, Ireland, with his Scottish subjects. 


He had been successful in crushing the Irish rebellion, had confiscated ris- 
ing two million acres of land in Ulster, and conceived the idea of sending 
his own countrymen to occupy the acquired territory. The Scotch did no't 
view the project favorably, however, and for some' time the arranj^ement 
was not successful. Plnally the King issued a proclamation announcing his 
'•unspeakable love and tender affection" for his Scottish subjects and ofrered 
such strong inducements that a few families from the Western Highlands 
removed to Ulster in 1612. The King said of the original lands r^'-They 
have been disburdynt of the former rebellion and disobedient inhabitants 
thereof who in the justice of God, to their schame and confusion, are 

The settlers who removed from the Highland shires on the west coast 
of Scotland "were as restless as the waves of the seas" and did not prove 
acceptable, and a new list of names of applicants was procurred ; and the 
commissioner's agent writing the King assures him that these "Inland Scots" 
(since known as Lowdand Scotch) were much superior to the first consign- 
ment; that tiiey were of "better stufl"" and came with "better port." 

The conditions of settlement in Ulster were arbitrary. Each undertaker 
of 2,000 acres was bound by the covenants of his patent to allow timber to 
his tenants for building purposes for the space of three years, provided it 
grew on his allotment of lands, and was not found on those adjoining. His 
fee-farmers were to build vicinitim. He was to have ready in his house or 
castle, muskets, calivers, and hand-weapons sufficient to arm twenty-four 
men ; was to hold 660 acres in demesne, alienating all the remainder'; was 
to pay for his 2,000 acres the annual rent of ten pounds, thirteen shillings 
and fourpence ; was not to alienate or demise any lands to mere Irish, or to 
others who would not take the oath of suprem'acy. Each undertaker of 
2,000 acres was required to give a bond of four hundred pounds binding 
him or his heirs to build one dwelling house of brick or stone, surrounded 
by a strong court or bawn within three years, reckoning from Easter 1610. 
He must plant on his land eight able men of eighteen vears or upwards. 
born in the inivard part of Scot/and* The undertaker wa's to be present in 
person, or by such other person as may be permitted to act as his represen- 
tative, during the space of five years after the feast of St. Michael the arch- 
angel, 1610; and he was not to alienate any of his lands during the said 
five years save to his undertakers whom he was to settle there. They were 
not to grant any leases for less than twenty-one years, and were re'quired 
to prevent the Scotch tenants from marrying and 'fostering with the Irish. 

It will be seen from the above that 'the King was careful to introduce 
the old feudal system into the Plantation of Ulster. The undertakers or 
landlords, must have been persons possessed of considerable means to as- 
sume the responsibilities of settlement. They were selected with much care 
by the commissioners appointed by the Ki'ng, who, savs Hill, appear to 
have known something of the applicants for lands before 'the Scottish Secre- 
tary had forwarded his roll of names. Hay wrote that he had received a 
list of new undertakers for Ireland, being men of greater stutT and ability 
than the first consignment. Many who desired to hold a portion of the 

»Many of the Highland .Scotch families were of Roman Catholic faith, and as this 
was to be a Protestant settlement they were prohibited. 


Ulster land were doomed to disappointment, for in the summer of 1609, 
only twenty-eight applicants out of one hundred and sixteen were success- 
ful. Of the seventy-four applicants whose names were on the second roil. 
only thirteen obtained " proportions " of the Ulster lands. As a precaution, 
men were delegated bv the commissioners to visit the Lowlands of Scotland 
where the applicants lived that they might ascertain whether they possessed 
sufficient substantial means to entitle them to settle in Ireland. 

Among the numerous tenants induced by the undertakers to remove 
from Scotland to Ulster were many families named Milliken and Milligan 
who had been sheep farmers in Gallowayshire, Ayrshire, and Dumfresshire,* 
and these Protestants became the progenitors of a mighty host who have 
since borne the surnames in Canada, Australia and the United States. 

We wish the readers of this sketch, whether of Milliken blood or gentiles, 
to distinctly understand that those who were born on the Ulster land and 
called " Scotch-Irish " did not have a drop of Irish blood in their veins ; 
they were not the children of a Scotch father and an Irish mother. 

Macaulay the distinguished historian, says : '' They sprang from differ- 
ent stocks. They spoke a different language. They had different national 
characters as strongly opposed as any two races in Europe. They were in 
widely different stages of civilization. Between two such populations there 
was little sympathy, and centuries of calamity and wrong had engendered a 
strong prejudice and antipathy. The Celtic race were called Irish and ad- 
hered to the church of Rome. On Ireland's soil resided two hundred thous- 
and Colonists proud of their Saxon blood and Protestant faith. * * * 

There could not be equality between men who lived in comfortable houses 
and men who lived in filthy sties ; between men who subsisted on bread and 
those who fed on potatoes ; between men who spoke the language employed 
by philosophers, orators and poets, and men who communicated with each 
other in a chattering jargon with a brogue at each end of every word. 

The blood of the Scot and Celt did not comingle, the red current was 
not tributary from one to the other. They were as rigid in their distinction 
as were the Hebrews and inhabitants of Canaan, and would not intermarry. 
In crossing to Ireland the Scottish emigrants carried their broad Scotch 
dialect with them and held on to it, transmitting it to their children una- 
dulterated and unimpaired. They sang Scotland's sacred hymns as sang 
their Covenanting ancestors amid Scotland's glens, and the songs of Low- 
land poets awakened echoes on Ireland's moors." 

This broad Scotch dialect' that had survived unalloyed in Lister for a 
century was brought to the American Colonies and continued to be the 
dialect spoken in the Scotch-Irish families from Maine to Georgia until the 
last of the original emigrants had passed away ; then it was heard in a mod- 
ified form by their descendents. James Milliken of Ohio writing of his 

* The residence of many of the Millikens who fled from Scotland to Ireland to escape 
from the bloody was only temporary, and when by a change of government 
or policy persecution subsided they returned to their native land where in the border 
counties they established permanent homes as farmers and herdsmen, and some de- 
scendents a 'few generations down the line went into England and became wealthy mer- 
chants and manufacturers ; while others held civil commissions under the King. Some 
have distinguished themselves in the British army ; some are men of letters and pro- 


grandfather ^vho came from I?>romore, Ireland, to Pennsylvania about 1760, 
savs : "He disliked to be called an Irishman and insisted that he was of 
pure Scottish blood. He used the broad language spoken by the Lowland 
Scotch peasantry and sang Scotch songs as he sat on his loom." And this 
statement is signiticant of all the Millikens who settled in America. An 
old lady of this name, the granddaughter of Alexander Milliken who came 
from Castledawson, Ireland, remembered many of the Scotch hymns and 
songs heard in.her childhood among New Hampshire's hills : and her father's 
common speech was in the broad Scotch dialect. The early families of 
Milliken in Scarborough, Maine, though born in America, used the same 
language brought from Scotland by their parents, and the late Jacob Mil- 
liken, the centenarian, was often heard to use language and phrases peculiar 
to the Lowlands of Scotland. 

In his address at the Scotch-Irish Congress, Rev. John S. Macintosh 
said of this people :— " Peculiar and royal race ; yes, that indeed is our race ! 
I shrink not from magnifying my house and blood with a deep thanksgiving 
to God who made us to differ, and sent His great messenger to lit us for our 
great earth-task — task as peculiar and royal as the race itself. I shame me 
not because of the Lowland thistle and the Ulster gorse, of the Covenanter's 
banner or the L'lsterman's pike. We Scotch-Irish are a peculiar people who 
have left our own broad, distinct mark wherever we have come. Today we 
stand out sharply distinguished in a score of points from all other races. 
These marks, like ourselves, are strong and stubborn. Years do not change 
them. The passing decades leave them unmodified. Contact with other 
people and new fashions have never rubbed down the angles nor eliminated 
any of the elements. Crossing channels or seas ; residence in new countries, 
have left our people as distinct as before. The same methods, tough faiths, 
unyielding grit, granite hardness, closemouthed self repression, clear-cut 
speech, blunt truthfulness, God fearing honesty, loyal friendship, defiance of 
death — these are some of the traits of the Scotch-Irish. These are birth- 
marks and indelible. They are great soul-features. They are principles — 
of four classes: religious, moral, intellectual and political." 

In both Lowlander and Llsterman the same traits are conspicuious ; 
the strong racial pride, the same hauteur and seli-assertion, the same close 
mouth, the same firm will. "The stiff heart for the steek brae," They still 
insist that "We are no Eerish, but Scoatch." All of their old tales, tradi- 
tions, songs, poetry, heroes and home-speech are of Lowland types. The 
clannish spirit was very marked in the Colonists of Ulster. They protested 
against a settlement of a promiscious character, they called for an allotment 
and assignment of lands where kinsfolk, neighbors, and countrymen might 
live in comm.unities ; where there could be harmonious faiths, forms of wor- 
ship, customs, friendships, and family ties. They carried with them the 
spirit of their old homes, and guarded that with sacred care. 

And this same arrangement was largely carried out when the Ulstermen 
and their families came to the American Colonies ; they came in commu- 
nities, by churches and families who were related by blood or marriage ; 
and there is scarcely an instance where, among the early emigrants from 
Ulster, a Scotch-Irish family became isolated. Wherever they sat down 
ifter their settlement in America, they exhibited the same clannish spirit 

and fashion. 


The removal of the Millikens and Milligans from tlie Lowlands of Scot- 
land to the Ulster counties was, in many respects, a misfortune ; to use an 
old New England figure, it was like "jumping from the frying-pan into the 
fire." They fled from the land of their nativity to escape from religious 
persecution and oppression only to encounter almost equal sufferings in 
their adopted homes. Those whose lands had been confiscated not only 
hated the King but all of his Scottish subjects. If it was known that any 
of the new occupants of the land had been in the army and were engaged 
in any of the battles, such were the objects of the most malevolent hatred. 
It has been related that Emanuel Millikin who fought at the Boyne in i6go, 
along with his sons who stood by his side in the ranks, were persecuted vin- 
dictively by the Irish Catholics, and some of them left their lands in Sligo 
and fled to other counties. The knowledge of the service of these Milli- 
kins in the war was handed down from father to son in the families of their 
Irish neighbors, and so long as one of the name descended from the old 
soldier remained on his land grant, they were in constant danger. 

The same description of surfering will pertinently apply to Alexander 
Milliken and his sons and descendents who lived near Castledawson in the 
county of Londonderry. A vivid tradition embalming the particulars of 
persecutions from the Catholic Irish was often told at the flresides of his 
posterity in Massachusetts and New Hampshire for two or three gener- 
ations, and faint echoes of the story may still be heard from the lips of 
some venerable member of the family. 

The same relations of sufferings were heard in the homes of the Milli- 
ken emigrants wherever they sat down in the American or British colonies, 
and the same spirit of hatred still exists in Ireland ; ready, like slumbering 
embers, to burst into devouring flame at the least provocation when there 
is any hope of escaping punishment. 

The sons of the dispossessed Irish land-owners deprived of their antici- 
pated inheritance resorted to the vast areas of woodland then existing in 
Ulster and became woodkerne, or robbers, who subsisted by blackmail, or 
ransoms paid for the liberty of such of the Scotch emigrants as they had 
carried away to their wilderness hiding places. These woodkerne v.-ere so 
numerous that they infested every settlement where Protestants had estab- 
lished themselves. They dro\'e away their horses and cows, burned their 
harvests and buildings, and treated their wives and daughters with shameful 
indignity. This persecution was unrelentingly continued for years and 
many instances can be mentioned where the Catholic Irish who were per- 
mitted to remain in Ulster have harassed their Protestant neighbors during 
the century just gone. As will be found by reading the biographical notices 
in this volume many of the families of Milliken and Millikin who came to 
America abandoned lands granted to their Scottish ancestors for services 
in the army in consequence of the constant molestation of their Irish neigh- 

Note — At the time of the plantation of Ulster the Commissioners who had charge of 
the movement were careful to make such arrangements that families of kinsman and old 
neighbors born in Scotland might live together, and in the allotment of land we learn that 
in the county of Armagh the barony of Fewes fell to the Scotch. In Tyrone the two 
baronies of Mountjoy and Strabane fell to the Scotch. In county Donegal the baronies 
of Portlough and Iloylagh fell to the Scotch. In county Fermanaugh the baronies Knock- 
ninnie and Magheraljoy fell to the Scotch. 


They raised a conspiracy in 1640 which aimed at the complete exter- 
mination of the Protestants in Ireland ; and were so far successful that 
forty thousand w^X'i suddenly massacred in different sections of the country. 
A contemporary writing of what had transpired, said : " No condition, no 
age, no sex was spared ; and death was the slightest intiiction by the rebels. 
All the tortures which wanton cruelty could devise, all the lingering pains 
of body, the anguish of mind, and the agonies of despair could not satiate 
the revenge of the Irish. At length Cromwell avenged the blood of the 
slaughtered saints and crushed the insurrection. 

After the Restoration in the year 1660, James, a brother of King Charles, 
was appointed Viceroy of Scotland, and being a bigoted Catholic, the 
Presbyterians were the objects of his hatred and persecution. An early 
writer has said : " He let loose upon them the dogs of war and drove hun- 
dreds of them into exile. Large numbers escaped through Ireland and 
joined the remnant of their brethren who had preceded them." Still there 
was no peace or safety for these Protestants so long as the laws and 
inhabitants around them were hostile to the principles which they held so 

Such constancy, steadfastness, and perseverance, as was exhibited by 
these Scotch-Irish people in the endeavor to maintain a footing upon the 
soil of their adopted country, has seldom, if ever been witnessed, but their 
sufferings and sacrifices did not avail. They held the troops in check while 
they defended the last stronghold of William of Orange in Ireland. At 
Londonderry and at Boyne-water, in the Logan Forces and at Enniskillen. 
they poured out their blood most freely, and suffered every hardship for 
their faith and the protection of their homes, only to meet disappointment 
under the bloody policy of their enemies. One writing in 1727, says: 
"Londondei-ry was besieged nearly half a year (i68g) by the army of 
King James, when he had all Ireland subdued but Derry and a little place 
hard by. The besieged Presbyterians defended themselves, till they were 
so pinched with hunger that a clog's head was sold cheap enough at half a 
crown ; and yet God sustained them until King William sent them relief by 
two ships with men and provisions from England, at which sight, before 
the ships had reached the city and landed their men, the besiegers moved 
their camp and fled to the west of Ireland, where, after two hard fought 
battles the Papists were subdued." 

To the plantation of Lester may be traced the awful scenes and events 
of the ten years civil v.'ar commencing in 164 1, the horrors of the revolu- 
tionary struggle in i6go, and the reawakening of those horrors in 179S — not 
to mention many less notable phases of the contest during the intervals 
between these disastrous eras. 

When every hope of enjoying religious liberty and the unmolested pos- 
session of their homes had perished, these devoted Christian heroes turned 
their faces toward the American Colonies where they might find an asylum 
for the peaceful worship of God. They left their homes and kindred and 
the lands granted to their fathers for services in the army, to brave the 
dangers of the ocean during a long and stormy voyage, and the wilderness 
of a foreign land in search of a spot where they could act according to the 
dictates of conscience and secure a living for their families. 


From 1680 the Protestants commenced to sell or forsake their lands and 
take ship for America, and as their oppressions became more intolerable the 
ratio of emigration increased until thousands of Scotch-Irish families were 
scattered from Pennsylvania and Maryland to Virginia and the Carolinas. 
As soon as these emigrants had landed and found places of settlement they 
forwarded letters to their kindred in which were described in such glowing 
colors the American lands, forests, rivers and lakes, that in the early part 
of the nineteenth century several shiploads of the Presbyterian population 
of Ulster were brought over to our shores. Among these emigrants v.-ere 
many families named Milliken of whom some sat down in New England, 
and others entering the Delaware, settled in Pennsylvania. They did not 
all come to America, however ; many still clinging to their lands and homes 
remained in Ireland and became the progenitors of those sturdy families of 
Milliken and Milligan who now inhabit the green hills and broad farms of 
Antrim, Armagh, Down and Londonderry. 

Modern Ulster Homes. More entrancing rural scenery than exists in 
Ulster could scarcely be found in the British Isles. The broad undulating 
farms are bordered by neat walls or green hedges, and dotted with noble 
trees. The brilliant green of the hillsides is relieved and beautified by acres 
of tiax "in the bloe," and to give a pleasing variety to the landscape, the 
moorlands are adorned with purple heather and golden broom. Extensive 
bleach-fields covered with long webs of snow white linen add novelty and 
attractiveness to the rural scene. Here and there as the traveler passes 
along, his thoughts will be diverted from the predominating agricultural 
scene to the days of antiquity by the crumbling ivy-grown ruins of some old 
castle that rises to view beside his way. 

In visiting the well cultivated farms in Ulster he will find the same ar- 
rangement of modern building as prevail across the channel in the Scottish 
Lowlands. The low-browed, white-walled cottages decking the hills and fac- 
ing outward, forms one side of a quadrangular enclosure or small courtyard, 
while the byres, (barns) cart-houses, tool-sheds and broad arched gateway 
for entrance will form the other sides. A row of neatly thatched straw- 
stacks, resembling giant bee-skelps, will stand beside the sheltering wall 
without. Within this hollow square a wide-spreading tree affords abundant 
shade over the pavement of whinstones. Here may be found the farmer's 
wife, daughters and dairy-m.aids with bare feet and high-tucked skirts, rosy 
cheeked, robust and merry-hearted, attending to their daily culinary duties. 
Here stands the high-posted wooden pump, and stone seats covered with 
shining dairy tins. If the visitor should enter the farmer's house he will 
find the same arrangements, practically, that meets his gaze in the standard 
Scottish farmer's dwelling. In the kitchen the peat fire will be burning in 
the open grate, with the iron oven at one side. A long shelf above the 
dresser and the doors extending the entire length of the room will be decked 
out with divers sizes of polished metal tea urns, and a variety of large, fig- 
ured bowls. The tv/o principal rooms below stairs are still called the 
"Butt" and "iJen." In the ben-end he will find some plain, substantial fur- 
niture, the round table well supplied with books, a few pictures will adorn 
the walls, some ornaments will be displayed on mantle and brackets, and 
dimity curtains v.ill be draped at the windows. Everything will be a re- 
minder of thrift, frugality, simplicity and comfort. 


The domestic scene at evening-time will be typical of the "Cotters Sat- 
urday Night" as described by Robert Burns. The Ulsterman has come 
home from his fields, or the flocks on the hills, and reads his paper at the 
fireside, his shepherd dog lying at his feet. The venerable grandmother, 
seated upon the high-back resting-chair, her stooping shoulders caped, and 
her head enveloped in a frilled white mutch, (cap) gazes demurely upon the 
glowing embers within the grate. The gude wife and her contingent of 
robust daughters and maids are busy with "mickle-wheel" and reels dres- 
sing the lint, while they jest and laugh and sing Scotch songs. The closing 
evening scenes will be the reading of a Psalm, and family devotions ; then 
the "guide nichts," and all are away to bed. 

"Compared with this, how poor Religious pride, 

In all the pomp of method and of art, 
When men display to congregations wide. 

Devotion's ev'ry grace, except the heart." 

The Millikens and Milligans now living in Ireland are principally thrifty 
farmers ; some, however, having removed into the cities and large towns, 
have become merchants and craftsmen. They are all Protestants, and in 
spirit, faith, and character are worthy representatives of their Covenanting 
ancestors who suffered for the truth among Scotland's moors and mountains. 
They are a conservative, God-fearing, church-going people ; they appreciate 
the advantages of education and in a quiet, unostentatious way are iden- 
tified with all the. local movements calculated to enlighten and morally im- 
prove the condition of the population. 

The observing traveler will mark the close resemblance between the 
people he meets and those living in the Border shires of Scotland. They 
may be more rawboned, more brawny and of greater stature, but in com- 
plexion, features, and mental character they will be the same. If he engages 
these Ulstermen in conversation he will hear the same broad dialect spoken 
in the "Land of Burns." Here the same martyr faith prevails; here will 
be found the same services in the sanctuary; the same old gospel and the 
same psalms and hymns. 

The traditions relating to a common ancestry have been told at a hun- 
dred firesides on both sides of the sea. Aged men who were born in the 
Border shires of Scotland have related them to their grandchildren at the 
"ingle-newk" of many a home on the Ulster hillsides ; venerable sires who 
heard the stories from the lips of grandparents in Ireland, repeated them to 
their grandchildren in the pioneer cabins of Pennsylvania and Ohio, in 
Maryland and the Carolinas ; while they, in turn, passed them down to 
their posterity. 

Old m.en now living in Antrim and Londonderry, have informed the au- 
thor of visits made by relatives bearing the Milliken name from distant 
parts of Ireland to the homes of their grandparents when they were chil- 
dren ; and they have a distinct recollection of the stories to which they 
listened when sitting around the peat fires, concerning the sufferings of 
their Scottish forefathers on the moors and mountains with Cameron, and 
how they fought at Drumclog and Bothwell Bridge, at the Boyne, Knnis- 
killin, and Londonderry. From the Jip-s of two persons a tradititja can be 


transmitted through seven generations over a period of two hundred years. 
To illustrate : 

1. Robert Mii-liken, a shepherd-farmer in the shire of Galloway, Scotland, 
was a zealous Covenanter who escaped with his family to Ireland, in the 
year 1680. He was born in 1650, and died in Londonderry in the year 
1740, aged 90. 

2. James Millikex, son of the preceding, born in the year 1670, was ten 
years of age when he went with his parents to Ulster, Ireland, in 16S0, and 
lived contemporary with his father 70 years, dying in 1750, aged 80. 

3. Robert Milliken, son of the preceding, born in Londonderry, Ireland, 
in 1695, lived contemporary with his father 54 years, and with his grand- 
father 45 years, dying in 1791, aged 96 years. 

4. William Milliken, son of the preceding, born in Londonderry, Ireland, 
in the year 1720, died in 1794, aged 74. He lived contemporary with his 
father 71 years, and with his grandfather 30 years. 

5. Robert Milliken, son of the preceding, born in Londonderry, Ireland, 
in the year 1750, died in 1830, aged So. He lived contemporary with his 
grandfather 41 years, with his father 44 years. 

6. Samuel Milliken, son of the preceding, born in Colerain, Ireland, 1810, 
was living in 1895 in full possession of his mental faculties, and related 
what his father had received from the lips of his grandfather relating to the 
experiences of his grandfather who was the exiled Covenanter first in Ulster. 

This is an exceptional case of longevity in the lineal descent of a family, 
but the Millikens are in the habit of living a century without complaining.* 

Samuel Milliken, hale and hearty at the age of 85, had a concise recol- 
lection of his father's description of his grandfather, the third Robert Mil- 
liken. He said : "My grandfather lived with my father when an aged man 
and was a person of peculiar and unalterable habits. He was small of stat- 
ure, a weaver of the hand-loom by occupation, and very stooping. He wore 
always, indoors and out-of-doors, a blue, knitted Killmamock bonnet. His 
hair, heavy and snow-white, fell in curling masses about his neck; his 
diet in old age consisted of potatoes, which he insisted upon roasting in the 
embers, and oatmeal porridge. When not employed at his loom he spent 
much of his time in reading the lives of the Covenanters, and was never 
weary of his description of his grandfather and the recitations to which he 
had listened in his boyhood from his lips relating to his adventures on the 
moors and mountains of Galloway when hunted by Claverhouse. Two of 
his brothers were at Bothwell Bridge and amongst the prisoners in the 
Greyfriers churchyard. His father, when an aged man, had made a long 
journey on foot to sign a copy of the Covenant, and died soon afterwards 
from the fatigue of his exertion. He, himself, had escaped to Ireland by a 
small boat in the night-time, and had returned to Scotland but once to visit 
his kindred in Galloway. He (the first Robert) was at the battle of the 
Boyne and suffered at the siege of Londonderry. He was well known and 
held in high esteem, and when he died the local militia turned out and gave 
him a soldier's burial. His body was carried to his grave on 'chairpoles' 
by his four sons. 

*The author has record of four Centenarians in the family. 


I also have a vivid recollection of my venerable grandmother as she sat 
on the resting-chair beside the peat fire spinning the lint (tlax) and croon- 
ing some old tune. She was of robust figure and Horid face, but she wore a 
great Scotch mutch (cap) that almost hid her features. She was a woman 
of deep and unostentatious piety. She would always sit demurely with her 
hand shading her eyes when my father opened the Bible to read for the even- 
ing worship, and in a subdued voice repeated the Lord's Prayer while the 
family joined in their devotions. She died full of years, sincerely lamented 
by many." 

American Families. The earliest families of this name known to have 
settled in the American Colonies came to Maryland in the train of Lord 
Baltimore. Patrick MuUikin and James Mullikin, probably brothers, were 
in the Province as early as 1650, and took up land in Dorchester county 
alongside of each other. They also had grants of land in Calvert county, 
but finally sat down on plantations in Anna Arundel and Talbot counties 
where their descendents have since resided. It has not been ascertained 
whether these MuUikins came from Scotland or the Province of Ulster in 
the North of Ireland. A family tradition, however, makes them come from 
the northern shires of Scotland bringing their servants and household gear 
with them. Their land grants from Lord Baltimore were extensive and 
increased rapidly in value as the country was settled. Broad plantations 
were laid out, many slaves purchased and enormous crops produced. In 
process of time stately and capacious mansions were erected which were 
occupied by large families for several generations. Thev were well allied 
with many of the most respectable and aristocratic families in Maryland, 
and their income enabled them to live in comfort and the enjoyment of 
such luxuries as were obtainable by families of wealth at that period. For 
full particulars see the genealogy in the body of this book. 

The next families in order of time to appear in the colonies came from 
Scotland, to Boston as early as 1680. These certainly held a good social 
position among their contemporaries and their names in the early records 
of the town are found in good company. They were communicants, or at- 
tendants, at the Brattle street church, which was the sanctuary where such 
distinguished citizens as Paul Revere worshipped. They were members of 
the Scott's Charitable Society and of the St. Andrews Lodge of Free Ma- 
sons to which Paul Revere belonged. Thomas Milliken was treasurer of 
this lodge and, as did others of the family, served on important committees. 
These fraternal bodies were composed largely, as their titles implies, of 
Scotchmen and persons of Scotch descent, and their membership were highly 
respectable, intelligent, and well allied by marriage. These Millikens held 
the tradition of a superior ancestry and endeavored to transmit to their pos- 
terity, by precept and example, unimpaired, the prestige of their fathers. 
Those who removed to Dunstan were men of intelligence and probity ; they 
were law-abiding, patriotic and religious, and held important official posi- 
tions, civil and judicial. Fdward Milliken was a magistrate of high stand- 
ing and was widely known as "Justice r^Iilliken." Deacon Nathaniel, his 
brother, was long the honored official of the first Orthodox church of Scar- 
borough. The brother Samuel was an earnest patriot, was at the siege of 
Louisburg under Pepperill, and died while singing a hymn of praise to God. 


A majority of the Millikens, Milligans, and Mullikins have been serious, 
sedate, grave, considerate and conservative. They were moderate, cautious 
and deliberate, making no haste to form an opinion or close a bargain, but 
everlastingly determined and uncompromising when their "minds were 
made up." From their Coventing forefathers they have been morally and 
religiously inclined, and wherever they established homes were ardent sup- 
porters of the church. As Protestants they fought from principle in Ireland 
and to enjoy the privilege of untrammelled worship they escaped from their 
oppressors to the American Colonies where great care was bestowed upon 
the moral and religious education of their children ; and to these inestimable 
influences must be attributed the almost universal excellence of character 
maintained by persons who bear the family name. In England, Scotland, 
and Ireland, not less than twenty clergymen have been produced by the 
branches of this family, and rising fifty in the American branches. As de- 
scendents of martyr heroes they have possessed the martyr's faith and zeal, 
and gave eminent and devoted service to the cause they represented. As 
preachers they were bold advocates of righteousness, and fearlessly opposed 
what was wrong. 

Military Record. Since the days of their chivalrous Saxon-Norman 
ancestors and the Scottish and Scotch-Irish forefathers, the loyalty, patri- 
otism and courage of the members of this family have been unquestioned. 
They fought with William the Conquerer at the battle of Hastings, and with 
Richard Cameron at Airdmoss ; they were in the army at the Boyne and 
Enneskillen ; suffered at the Biege of Londonderry, Ireland, and bore arms 
in every war since the settlement of the American Colonies. The Pension 
Records at Washington show the names of twelve men from this family who 
served during the Revolution, and six of them were of the family in Scar- 
borough, Maine. Many others were engaged in the struggle for American 
Independence who did not survive to apply for a pension. The names of 
sixteen others stand on the Pension List who fought in the war of 1S12, 
and some received wounds in battle from which they suffered the remainder 
of their lives. During the war with Mexico, several Millikens served under 
Gen. Winfield Scott. This family was represented by more men in the 
L^nion and Confederate armies during the Civil war than any other in the 
country, more than one Jiundred soldiers bearing the name, having borne 
arms in that fratricidal struggle. 

The stream of Millingas blood, taking its rise in a Saxon fountainhead 
more than a thousand years ago, has tiowed downward by the physical law 
of gravity through forty generations and has lost none of its momentum or 
fertility; and its rich, red, rushing current, circulating in their veins has 
imparted to the family the coolness and solidity of the Saxon ; the maritime 
spirit and adventure of the Scandinavian ; the imagination and sense of en- 
joyment of the Norman ; the emotion and poetic feeling of the Celt ; the 
moderation and conservatism of the Einglishman ; the seriousness and re 
flection of the Scotchman ; the haughty independence of the Ulsterman, 
and the energy and enterprise of the typical American. This vital current 
has furnished to numerous families collaterally connected tributaries that 
have invested them with marked temperamental traits of character. With 
but few exceptions the members of this family have stood upon the right 


side of all important national and moral questions, and were never afraid 
to identify themselves with any movement that involved the public welfare. 
They were loyal advocates of Christianity and education, and liberal sup- 
porters of the church and public schools. They did not stand in the way 
of the evolutionary wheels of progress, but always put the /r/-,'' on the right 
side. Being diligent readers and profound thinkers, the rank and file of 
the family were well informed and equipped for filling their stations as citi- 
zens of our grand Republic. When once enlisted in any reform movement, 
whether of a civil, moral, temperance, or religious character, they devoted 
themselves to its progress with determined and unfaltering loyalty until 
they achieved success or died in the conflict.

(The ^Iqcr tamiln at Dunstau; 




In writing a history of the numerous family in Maine known as "The Scarborough 
Miliikens," there are good reasons for comprising in an introductory chapter an account 
of the Alger families at Dunstan from whom they are descended maternallv. and from 
whom they inherit their estates ; indeed the relationship was such that the early history 
of the two families is indivisible. 

The earliest known mention of the Algers in Xew England is the si'j-- 
nature of Thomas Alger to the delivery of the Trelawney grant to John 
Winter of Richmond's Island, July 21, 1632. The name of Andrew Alger 
appears as a witness to a signature at the same place Aug. 26, 1635. Arthur 
Alger, a brother of Andrew, was there at the same time, and by the records 
of John Winter it appears that Tristram Alger was at Richmond's Island 
early; for in his (Winter's) letter to Robert Trelawney of date July 10, 
1637, he says: ''Tristram Alger would pray you to pay unto his wife" the 
money that is due unto him at this time. He is a quiet man." We know 
that this member of the Alger family was from Newton Ferrers, county of 
Devon, England, and he seems to have returned to his home. 

In a deposition found in the records of York county, Maine, there is 
reference to the fact that Arthur and Andrew Alger came from a viila^-e in 
England named Dunstan. In 163S, Andrew and Arthur Alger were living 
on Stratton's Island, and employed a number of fishermen. 

On the early records appear the names of two, possibly three, persons who 
were probably related to the brothers, Arthur and Andrew Alger. They 
were Tristram Alger who settled in Scarborough between 164.0 and i6;o; 
Arthur Alger Jr., one of the inhabitants of Scarborough who acknowledged 
allegiance to Massachusetts in 165S ; and Andrew Alger who lived at Cape 
Porpoise in 1674, and in 1690 removed with his wife to Xewbury, Mass., and 
was reputed ancestor of the family of this name in Connecticut. 

Andrew Alger was living in Saco as early as 1640, and was styled "Sur- 
veyor." In 1641, he and his brother Arthur purchased of the Indians a 
tract of land within the limits of the town of Scarborough containing one 
thousand acres, and terms of this transaction are found in the following 
declaration : 

"19th of September, 1659. The declaration of Jane the Indian of Scar- 
borough concerning lands. This aforesayd Jane, alias Uphannum, doth 
declare that her mother, namely Xagasqua the wife of Wackwaarawaskee, 
Sagamore, and her brother namely L'gagoguskitr. and herself, namely Up- 
hannum, coequally hath souid unto .Vndrew Alger, and to his brother Arthur 
Alger, a Tract of Land beginning att the mouth of ye River called blew 
Poynt River, where the River doth part, and so bounded up along with the 
River called Ov.asseoage in Indian, and soe up three scoore poole above 
the falls, on the one side ; and on the other side bounded up along with the 
norther-most River that Dreaneth by the great hill Abram Jocelyn's and 
goeth northv,-ard, bounding from the head of ye Kiver South \Vest,'and soe 
to the aforesyd bounds, namely th.-ee score poole above the Falls. This 


aforesaid Uphannum doth declare that her mother and brother and she hath 
already in her hand received full satisfaction of the aforesayd Algers for 
the aforesyd Lands from the beginning of the world to this day, provided 
on condition that for tyme to come from yeare to yeare yearly the aforesaid 
Algers shall peacably suffer Uphannum to plant in Andrew Alger's field seo 
long as Uphan : and her mother Xagasqua doe both live, and alsoe one 
bushel of corn for acknowledgment every year soe long as they both shall 
live. Uphan: doth declare that ye bargan was made in the year 1651 into 
which Shee doth subscribe the mark Uphannum X." 

In 1674, the "Indian Jane" made a second acknowledgment of this sale 
which is recorded as follows : 

"Note yt this sayle of ye Land Recorded in pa : 114: within expressed, 
sould to Andrew Alger by those Indians, who sould to ye sd Algers them 
yr heyers, executors, administrators and assigns forever, as is owned by 
Uphan: alias Jane, this 27 : of May 1674: in presence of William Phillips. 

Seth Fletcher." 

The brothers Andrew and Arthur had built them cabins and with their 
families were settled on their lands. They had faithfully complied with the 
terms of their agreement and with their married children settled around 
them had lived in peace with their Indian neighbors. On the salt marshes 
they could cut hay for their cattle in winter and found abundant pasturage 
for them in summer. They had a house at the '* Neck " which was their 
rendezvous during the fishing season and the denizens of the deep furnished 
delicious food for their tables. The hsh oil supplied their lamps and to- 
gether with the products of their cultivated lands, the dairy, the abundance 
of wild game and a variety of wild berries that grew on the new soil, sup- 
plied their temporal needs. 

But notwithstanding the acknowledgment by the Indians that they had 
received full satisfaction of the Algers for the land sold " from the beginning 
of the world;" although the Algiers had permitted Uphannum to plant in 
Andrew's field for more than twenty years and the " bushel of corn " had 
been bestowed annually to cement the bonds of friendship, yet the Algers 
saw that an Indian war with all its horrors was about to burst upon the 

Early in the autumn of 1675 they were warned to assemble at Sheldon's 
Garrison at Black Point. They were guarded by soldiers who assisted in 
removing their goods. Again on Oct. 12, 1675, Andrew and Arthur, ac- 
companied by relatives, went back to their cabin to remove some of their 
property that remained, and were attacked by Indians. We may never 
know the particulars concerning the experiences of that fatal day, but there 
are some rays of light thrown upon the scene by the depositions found. It 
was the family tradition that the Algers were shot when exposed on their 
return to the Garrison. Southgate, in his history of Scarborough says : 
" They were in their cabins at the time of the attack." Peter Witham ( aged 
72) in his deposition said: "About 52 or 3 years ago, then being in my 
country's service under Capt. John Wincol, and being posted with other sol- 
diers at Blue Point, at Mr. Foxwells Garrison, I went up to Dunstan to guard 
Andrew and Arthur Alger, and we assisted them to carry olf their grain. 
Some days after which the said Andrew and Arthur, with some of their re- 


lation, went from Shelton's Garrison to Dunstan to brinij off some of their goods, 
and were beset by the Indians and said Andrew was killed and said .\rthur was 
mortally wounded.'" 

JOAXXA PuN'CHEOX in her deposition, said: "One Robert Nichols who lived 
on their land (Algers) was killed with his wife in the beginning of the Indian war 
in -wheat hardest, and some weeks after, Andrew and Arthur Alger were killed 
in Indian liarccst:' 

Andrew Alger was shot dead and his brother Arthur was mortally wounded. 
The latter was conveyed to Marblehead, Mass., and died at the house of ^\"illiara 
Sheldon there on the 14th of the same month. Robert ElUott in bis deposition 
"witnesseth that about ye 14th day of Oct. 1675, Arthur Alger at William Shel- 
don's house in perfect sense and memory desired me and the rest standing by 
to take notice yt he did give all his goods moveable and immoveable to his wife 
Ann." Christopher Pickett, aged 60, and John Cooke, tesiitied to the word of 
Robert Elliott. Then follows '" An Inventory of the estate of Arthur Alger of 
Black Point wounded by the Indians and dying of his wounds Oct. 14, 1675, ^^ 
Marblehead." This Inventor}' was made by Giles Barry and Ralph Allison of 
Black Point, Jan. 4, 1676. The amount was ;!^io8, 3, 6. 

Arthur Alger was constable of Scarborough in 1658, and grand-juryman in 1661 ; 
and in 1671 and 1672, a representative to the General Court at Boston. His 
wife was Ann Roberts, a daughter of Giles Roberts, a very early inhabitant 
of Scarborough, who survived him. He was childless and brought up three 
sons of Giles Roberts Jr., his brother-in-law, and in his will left them £5, 10, 
apiece. In an extract from the Book of Eastern Claims, we find as foUows: 
" Ann Walker, formerly relict of Arthur Alger, claims a tract of land which was 
conveyed by his last will and testament dated 1675, '^o ^s wife Ann Alger." 
Her second husband was Samuel ^^'alker of Boston. 

Andrew Alger settled on his lands at Dunstan, removing from Saco, in 1654. 
He was constable and selectman, and in 1668 was commissioned lieutenant. 
He made his will in Scarborough, Mar. 23, 1669, in which he was styled ''Fish- 
erman." ^Mentions wife Agxes as executrix; sons John, Andrew, and Mat- 
thew, and daughters Ehzabeth, and Joanna. Appointed his brother Arthur 
Alger and friend Andrew Brov.n, overseers. The witnesses were Seth Fletcher 
and Roger Hill. \\"iil allowed June 30, 1676. Inventor}- amounted to ;^78. 
16, 10. There were not less than six children, named as follows: 

I. John Alger (1), son of Andrew (1), m. Mary ^^■ILMOT, daughter of Nicholas 

Wilmot who was an innholder in Boston. He had issue two children as foUows: 

J Elizabeth Alger, b. i66g, and was baptized at the First Church in 

Charlestown, Mass., in 16S7; she was then living with Nathaniel Adams, 

her uncle. She was married to Johx Milliken of Boston, and, on her 

father's death, coming into possession of a large share of the Alger estate 

at Dunstan, they removed to that plantation in 17 19. She was the only 

person living at Dunstan before the first Indian war who ever returned.

II. Johx Alger, b. 16 — , was lost in the expedition against Canada in 1690. 

He may have had some premonition of his fate as he made his v,-ill, — 

recorded in 1716 in the Middlesex Registry of Deeds — before leaving 

home. This instrument reads as follows: 


"I John Alger, formerly of Weymouth, now Resident in Charlestown, in 
New England, Carpenter, being bound out into ye Countries service with Sir 
William Phipps, against ye Indians and French, and not knowing how it may 
please the Lord to deal with me as to ye giving or taking away of mv natural 
life — These may certify to whom it may concern, That in case I should die or 
be killed in ye Service, I do make my dearly beloved and only sister Ehzabeth 
Alger, my heiress, and hereby do give and bequeath unto her whatsoever shall be 
due to me for my wages or my said Service during my life. Also I do fuUv, 
freely and clearly give and bequeath unto her and her heirs forever all my right,

2. Andrew Alger (2). son of Andrew^ (1), was killed by the Indians Sept. 21,. 
1689, at Falmouth, while lighting under Col. Church. His wife's name does not 
appear, nor do we know his place of residence. He had one child, 

I. Dorcas Alger, who was the wife of Matthew Collins, to whom m.

Dorcas, b. May 20, 17 13. 

3. Matthew Alger (1), third son of Andrew^ (1), married IMartha Carver, 
^\^dow of Robert Carver, of Boston. He was master of a transport in the expe- 
dition against Canada in 1690, in which he contracted a ship fever, and died soon 
after his return. The deposition of John Boden of date 1730, says: ''The said 
Matthew .A.lger went master of a vessel, as Transport to ye fleet under ye com- 
mand of Sir Wm. Phipps K. T. to Canaday, and was \-isited \vith a fleet fever, 
or sickness, whereof he died soon after his return, who was the last survinng 
male of the aforesaid Algers." He had two daughters, named as follows:

n. Hannah Alger, b. May 22, 1686, in Boston, Mass. 

4- Elizabeth Alger (2), eldest daughter of Andrew^ (1), was the wife of John 
Palmer. They resided at Dunstan previous to the Indian troubles. Palmer 
bad purchased 50 acres of land of the Algers July 15, 1662, and the Une then 
established may still be traced. In 1680 they removed to Boston, where he spent 
the remainder of his days. Forty-two years after the death of her father, Eliza- 
beth Palmer sold to John [Nlilliken Jr., all that tract of land beginning where the 
river doth part — "and every other the land of m.y late husband lying in the 
County of York." She had tv.-o children named as follows:

leads up to the falls, and sepperates Dunstan from Blue Poynt."' Her second 
husband was John Mills of Boston. Fifty-two years after the death of her 
father she gave deed to John Milliken Jr., and Samuel ]Milliken, as follows: "I

Having traced the histor}- and genealog}' of the Alger family until it became 
linked to that of the Millikens, we shall now proceed to follow the movements of 
the heirs to the estate, and present some detached references to the lands before, 
and subsequent to. their possession by the MiUikens. 

Willis assumed that the Algers came from Dunster, in Somersetshire, while 
Arthur ^l. Alger Esq., of Boston, believed they were from Dunstan, in the county 
of Norfolk, as families of this name had long dwelt there. At any rate, they 
named their lands in Scarborough, Duxstax, and in all probability for their 
English home. 

About the year 1760 there was a fire at Dunstan which burned the sawmills. 
As the present site of Dunstan is nearly a mile from any water-power, this state- 
ment seems inconsistent, but when Ave know that the most busy place on the lAlger 
lands was at the sawmill built by Watts about 1635, and in active operation for 
more than a century save when interrupted by Indian wars, we shall see that 
Dunstan of an early day, when the .\lgers applied this name, was near the well- 
known Seavey's bridge. About that place on the western side of the stream 
and on either side of the road, there are old apple trees and cellars which remain 
to mark the locaUties of the early settlers' homesteads. Here is the cellar of the 
house where Rufus King was bom, and near at hand the spring that supplied the 
family with water. Rambling along from this place toward Dunstan Landing, one 
may find other evidences of early habitations. Xear a bend in the river was the 
"Ryefield.'' so-called, where one of the earliest settlers of Dunstan lived. Fur- 
ther on was Dunstan Landing, from which sailed more shipping before the Revo- 
lution than from Portland or Falmouth. Jacob Milliken, the centenarian, de- 
clared on his one hundredth birthday, that he had seen lumber piled on both 

* There was evidently one or more links of relationship between the Alters and the Edge- 
comb family in Scarborough. The wife of Nicholas Eflgccornb was a Wilmot and probably 
of the same family as Man,-, daughter of Nicholas Wilmot, the Boston innholder, who was the 
%\-ife of John -Alger. Then we tind Mary flrigecomb the second wife of John Ashton who 
removed to Marblehead, ^^ass., at the time of the Indian war. She had been married to 
George Page of Biddeford, in 1664. Was her second husband identical with the John .Ashton 
who married Agnes .Alger? It will be seen that the .Algers removed to Marblehead also. Nich- 
olas and Mary Wilmot of Boston had issue: Mary, b. May 5, 1650; Abigail, b. Oct. 2, 1655; 
Elizahtlh, h. Sept. 26. 1657, and Hannah, b. Feb. to, 1659. 


sides of the road leading from Dun^tan Corner to the Landing, one half mile, 
awaiting shipment. 

On the Southgate farm are the rapids known in the early days as "Alger's 
Falls," and below them the Algers resided, ^^'hether they attempted to build a 
mill there is uncertain, but Col. Westbrook used this water-power after the Indian 
wars. Further up the stream, near the King burying ground, there are small 
falls where Benjamin Blackman had a mill as early as i6So. The remains of an 
old dam, and an ancient cellar, mark the spot where the pioneers sat down. Some 
distance north from this last mentioned locaUty are cellars excavated ver}- early 
in the settlement of Dunstan, but by whom we do not know. Easterly, along 
the line of an old fence and in the thick woods, there are apple trees and other 
evidences of human habitations. These were on the imi)roved highway cutting 
ofif several miles from the old Sylvanus Scott route which had long been the 
only way leading around the head of the marshes eastward. 

The stream that formed the southern boundary of Dunstan in the Algers time, 
was early known as Foxwell's brook, and on this a sawmill was Luilt at a very 
early day. The existence of this adjunct of a pioneer setdement might have 
been doubted had not the proprietor, Watts, been presented for carrying '' bards" 
on the Sabbath. This evidence is made stronger by a clause in Rigby's deed 
to Watts of date 1648, viz: — "one hundred acres adjoining his house which he 
hath occupied for 15 years past to be distinguished by the meets and bounds 
herein expressed and from the ' water Lakes' and edge of the bank to the north- 
ward of the house into the held that is between Richard Foxwells & \\'atts." Also 
by a deed from V\'atts to Ralph Allison dated loth Apr. 1673, in ^vhich he conveyed 
one half of the mill, and when Watts died said Allison was to possess the v.'hole. 

This mill was situated where the present road to West Scarborough crosses 
that stream. Here were natural advantages for a mill. There was a ledge on 
•one side and a projecting point of upland reaching nearly to it on the opposite 
side; thus making it an inexpensive task to till the chasm with a dam. The mill- 
pond would extend far back into the timber lands and afford a convenient water- 
way for conveying logs to the mill. Below, the tide water made transportation 
seaward easy. Watts described his mill as being situated in the village ice 
call Cot hell. 

The following relating to the settlement of a dispute concerning the northern 
and northwestern boundary of Dunstan, speaks for itself: 

"The Deposition of Jeremiah Moulton testifyeth and saith that about the year 
1719 by ye request of Mr. John Milhken Jun., I went with him to renew his 
bounds at a place called Dunstan, in Scarborough, by virtue of an Indian deed, 
and accordingly we began sixty rods above the falls. Mr. Nathan Knight being 
our Pilot, and one of the chainmen. and from thence we went N. E. and said 
line came near a bridge called Phillip's bridge and we came to the river that 
goeth near Joslins Hill, where it was pretty wide; it not being at the head of said 
river. The next day after we had done, old Mr. Milliken came home from the 
westward and inquired what we had done. I accordingly told him; he made 
answer and said, we had not done right, for we should have gone sLxty rods 
above the upper falls, and would have me run it over again, but my business 
called me home, and I could not go again, and further saith that there was no- 
body lived there then but Mr. Milliken, and Col. Westbrook with his people a 
masting. Sworn by the deponent in Superior Court at York, May ye 14th, 
1 73 1." Old Mr. Milliken was correct. 


The deed from the Algers to John Palmer of date July 15, 1662, is significant 
in fixing upon the location of the Alger homesteads. In all the plans of Dunstan 
this lot has been clearly marked out, and in fact its original lines are the bounds 
of lots in Dunstan to-day. The late Horatio Height, who had given the sub- 
ject much study, says: ''Wnd here we are compelled to ditfer from Southgate 
with regard to the dweUing-place of the Algers. Joanna Puncheon in her depo- 
sition, says: ' Arthur dwelled on the northermost side of a stream and Andrew on 
the south'ermost side. Next to Andrew lay the land of his son John and next to 
John lay the land belonging to John Palmer.' Any one who consults the plan of 
the 'Palmer Lot,' so-called, may see that the place where Southgate locates the 
Algers is near the middle of said lot. and it is not reasonable to suppose that 
they sold the very land on wliich they had estabUshed their homes. And because 
of what Joanna Puncheon testified concerning the location of Arthur Alger's 
house, and because the old house creek that was their highway runs close to the 
upland above the Turnpike; because of relics that have been found there, because 
it was in sight of the Garrison on the 'neck.' and because of the evidences of other 
foundations in the vicinity, v.-e may conclude that Southgate was in error and 
Joanna Puncheon correct." 

On coming from Boston to Dunstan after so long a time had elapsed, the heirs 
of the Algers found several persons in possession of parcels of the estate, and to 
agree with them, or to eject them, was the first important business to attend to. 
The disputes that arose resulted in htigation which brought to the court records 
the depositions from which much of this sketch has been compiled. Notwith- 
standing the able counsel employed, and money expended, in an attempt to de- 
stroy the validity of their claim, the heirs v.ere as secure with their old Indian 
"declaration" as they would have been with a charter bearing the royal seal. 

John Boden in his deposition, says: ''AMien at Dunstan in 1729, I noticed 
where the said Algers and their children's habitations were, and cornfields and 
pastures, and the land was grown up to large trees and looked like a wilderness.'* 
He also says the Algers were persons of note and of good character. 

The occupants of the mill on Blackman's Falls, on the return of the heirs 
of Dunstan, stoutly contested their right to this mill privilege but were not success- 
ful. Elhott \'aughan laid claim to part of Dunstan in 1733, but was defeated 
in litigation. The Alger heirs proved that Andrew and .Arthur, under their Indian 
title, held undisputed possession of their lands until interrupted by the Indians 
in 1675, and that when peace was established the heirs returned to their estate.

This is the most numerous of all branches of the IMiliiken families in America, 
and we must presently begin their genealogy by introducing a transcript from 
the early church records of Boston. The surname was there spelled as any 
broad-spoken Scotchman or Scotch-Irishman would have pronounced it, '' Mul- 
liken" and "^lulligen," but we have not found a single instance where one of 
this branch of the family used that orthography; they have universally spelled 
their names "Milliken" or "Millikin." There are abundant reasons for be- 
lieving that the families designated " MuUikens of Bradford. Mass.," were from 
the same stock, but for some cause now unknown they adopted another form of 
spelling the name. The family tradition makes their first New England an- 
cestors come from Scotland, and in this instance the tradition is supported by 
the public records. Several members of the family were members of the Scots 
Charitable Society, a fraternal and benevolent organization founded in 1651, and 
still in existence. John MiUiken was an important member of this society from 
1685 to 1 7 19, when he removed to Scarborough. Hugh Milliken, father of John, 
was a member of this association as early as i6Sr, and continued as long as he 
resided in Boston, or until his death. Thomas r^Iilliken, a brother of John Mini- 
Tien Jr., was a member of the St. Andrew's Society of Boston. This was another 
organization composed principally, if not wholly, of Scotchmen and persons of 
Scotch blood. 

Three famiUes of Zvlillikens appear in Boston contem,poraneously. We have 
no documentary evidence to show what relationship, if any, existed among them; 
but there are records to prove their residence in Boston at the same time, and an 
intimate association of interest. They evidently attended unon divine service at 
the same church, and the record of their children's births and baptisms are found 
in the Brattle Street church registers. The Rev. William Cooper, pastor of the 
First Church in Boston, afterwards the Brattle Street Church, m.ade record in his 
interleaved almanac of the baptism of two children of the first John Milliken 
and of admitting to full communion, "since the earthquake," of three members 
of the MiUiken family. We therefore assume that they could have adopted the 
language of the Psalmist: ''We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the 
house of God in company." 

While we have traced the descendants of John MilHken son of Hugh, and those 
of Robert ^Mulliken the reputed brother of Hugh, the posterity of Thomas and 
Elizabeth ]MiUiken, and of Robert MiUiken son of Hugh and Ellison, have not 
been found. Thomas and Elizabeth had a son Thomas born in Boston, Apr. 
27, 1692. From this date we do not find any record of that family. They may 
have disappeared from Boston. Robert MiUiken, son of Hugh and EUison, b. 
Aug. 9, 168 1, may have gone South, as there are traditions of such an ancestor in 
a Southern family. The foUowing records were copied from the Brattle Street 
church registers of Boston, and from a journal written on interleaves of the pas- 
tor's almanac: 

1. Robert Mulliken, son of Robert and wife R.ebecca, was b. Dec. 9, 1688. 

2. John Mulliken, son of Robert and wife Rebecca, was b. July 26, 1690. 


3. Mary Mullikex, daughter of Robertand wife Rebecca,\vasb. Sept. 26,1692. 

4. Thomas Mullikex, son ofThomasand wife Elizabeth, wasb. Apr. 27, 1692. 

5. Robert Mulliken, son of Hugh and wife Eleanor (or Ellison), was b. 
Aug. 9, 1681. 

Feb. 17, 1723, John Milliken was baptised. 
Apr. 25, 1725, Sarah MiUiken was baptised. 

Apr., 1728, Nathaniel MilHken, Abigail ^Milliken, and Eliza Miliiken, ad- 
mitted to full communion since the earthquake. 

Hugh Mulliken may be properly designated the first known ancestor of the 
family called the " Alger-Millikens.'' so early settled in Dunstan, now Scarbor- 
ough, Me. His name appears as a member of the Scots Charitable Society in 
Boston in 16S1 . and we reasonably assume that he was a Scotchman. The record 
of his wife's name is not distinctly legible, and has been written Eleanor and 
Ellison. Was not her maiden name Eleanor AlUson ? It is singular that no record 
of the death of Hugh and liis wife has been found. He may have removed from 
Boston. The family tradition makes Dea. Nathaniel Milliken of Scarborough, 
author of the statement that Hugh of Boston was his grandfather, and one of the 
deacon's daughters, married to a Benjamin MiUiken, and who lived in her father's 
house, named a son Hugh, in honor of her great-grandfather. 

It has been assum.ed that Hugh Mulliken of Boston was a "titled gentleman," 
from the fact that a coat-of-arms was early found in the Scarborough family and 
has been handed down as an heirloom from generation to generation by the de- 
scendants of the first known possessor. A venerable member of the family who 
was b. in 1S43, informed me in 1895, that when a lad he could he in his bed 
and see this coat-of-arms as it hung enframed upon the v.-all beside the picture of 
Lady Helen ^larr, who was some relation to the MilUken family. 

Capt. Isaac T. MiUiken of San Francisco, Cal., was a master mariner in early 
life and made voyages to Scotland. Being much interested in the liistor.' of his 
family he is said to have instituted investigations there which resulted in the dis- 
covery of the name of a Sir Hugh ^vlilUkea who participated in taking some 
strongly fortified castle, and was knighted, and granted a coat-of-arms in v^•hich 
were depicted three casdes in commemoration of his gallant achievement. This 
may be true, but when Capt. MilUken assumes that Hugh of Boston was identical 
with the brave knight he is in error. I have his written and unquaUfied assump- 
tion that John MiUiken who m. Elizabeth Mger was a son of Sir Hugh MilUken, 
Kt. To others whose letters were placed at ray disposal, Capt. Isaac T. MilUken 
has wTitten the same statement. In a letter from the Lyon-at-Arms, the highest 
authority on heraldry in Scotland, he has assured me that he knows nothing of 
this Sir Hugh MiUiken and his coat-of-arms. This should be conclusive, for if 
such had been granted to any titled Scotchman a record of the transacdon would 
be found at the Lyon ofiice. 

After a persistent search nothing more than has been stated in this connection 
has been discovered concerning Hugh and Eleanor (or ElUson) MUUken who 
appeared in Boston. They m.ay have died there without a record of such event 
being found at this late day. Some mou-ing searcher more familiar v.ith the old 
documents may find something that wiU throw Ught upon their subsequent history. 

John MiUiken^ (1), reputed son of Hugh MiUiken^ (1), of Boston, was prob- 
ably b. in Scotland, as no record of such e\ent has been found in New Engl.ind. 


He m. Elizabeth Alger, a daughter of John and Man- Wilmot Alger of Bos- 
ton, who was b. 1669 and baptized in 16S7, at the first church in Charlestown, 
where she was hving with her uncle, Nathaniel Adams. No record of this 
marriage has been found. They resided many years in Boston, and their children 
were b. there. In old documents he was styled "John Milliken house car- 
penter." After the death of his father-in-law, John Alger, he possessed, in his 
wife's right, an extensive land-estate at Dunstan, in Scarborough, Me., and his 
name appears there as early as 17 19.* In the year 1720, he and his son of the 
same name were present at the reorganization of the town government, when he 
was chosen for one of the selectmen. He was in Boston betimes as late as 1732. 
I have the copy of an account of his with the firm of Henderson &: Hewes. of 
date 1743 and 1754, in which there was a balance due them of £43, 4, 8 odd, Old 
Tenor, and stated ^s £$■> ^5)3 o*^d. LawfuU money. For this amount he gave his 
note for six months. As the charge? were for builders' hardware, he may have 
been erecting his farmhouse at Dunstan during that time. ^Ir. Milliken seems 
to have had broad ideas of farming, and carried on his agricultural schemes on 
a scale of considerable magnitude for the times. In a letter WTitten by him in 
1746, he says: "I have cleared a great deal of land; have made several miles of 
fence; this year have I planted as much land as three bushels of corn would 
plant, sowed as much as seven bushels of peas would sow, and as much as thir- 
teen bushels of oats and barley would sow." John MilUken died in 1749 and 
must have been 85 years of age. His widow died Feb. 9, 1754, aged 85 years. 
It has been assumed that only four of his sons were living at the time of settle- 
ment in Scarborough. After producing the family record as found in Boston. 
we shall proceed with the genealogy by dividing the pedigree into four parts, head- 
ing each with the name of one of the four sons of John ^lilKken who settled at

Apr. 20, 1726, with house thereon. His widow sold this to ^latthew 
Norton in 1728. His subsequent history is unknown. The name v.-as 
not perpetuated at the Vineyard. He was probably a sailor and may 
have been lost at sea.

John Milliken' (2), son of John- (1). and Ehzabeth Alger, wash, in Boston,

children. He m., second, Sept. 3, 172S, Rebecca Thomas, who d. in Scarbor- 
ough, Me., Apr. 25, 1760. He was a saddler by trade, and carried on his busi- 
ness in Boston for many years ''at the corner going down Wentworth's \Miarf." 
There is recorded in the Suffolk County registers, in Boston, a conveyance by 
John MiUiken, saddler, and Ehzabeth McCarty. widow, of an estate in Dedham, 
consisting of 20 acres, for the consideration of 20 pounds lawful money, of date 
Aug. 18, 1 7 18. This property came to John ^lilHken and Ehzabeth McCarty 
by inheritance — from whom? He lived in the town of Scarborough about 
forty years and d. during the Revolution, Sept. 8, 1779, aged 87 years. He 
purchased the right of his aunt, Elizabeth Palmer, to the Alger estate knov.-n in 
the Plans of Dunstan as "The Palmer Lot," May 19, 1727. Jointly with his 
brother, "Benjamin MiUiken, marriner," he purchased, June 21, 1727, the right 
of his great-aunt, Jane Davis, widow of Andrew Alger Jr., and daughter of Dor- 
cas Alger Collins. The same year, in company with his brother, Samuel Milh- 
ken, he purchased the right of his great-aunt, Joanna Alger Mills. \Mien the 
title to the Alger estate was estabhshed, this John owned one-half of the original 
grant and the "Palmer Lot" containing fifty acres. Although owning so large 
a territorial estate in the East, he continued his residence in Boston until after 
1744, when he located near Dunstan Landing. His house .>tood on the westerly 
side of the road, and the cellar was filled up by Mr. Xoah Pillsbury, who planted 
an orchard there, in 1S73. The spring from which the family procured water 
was, not long ago, in use. The subjoined letter shows that one man was under 
obligation to this John MiUiken. 

"Situate, May ye 26, 1740.

1. Mary Milliken* (1), daughter of John? (^2). b. in Boston, Aug. ii, 1719; was 
m. Nov. 9, 1745, to BEN7A1IIX Furxess, brother of Jonathan Furness, who m. 
her aunt, Elizabeth MiUiken. He was connected with the settlement of the John 
Milliken estate in Scarborough, Me., in 17S2. and his name appears as attorney 
for his children in the '' Milliken Covenant" of 1792. But httle is known of his 
history. He probably resided in Boston, as his cliiidren were christened in Trinity 
church there. A "minute" of papers belonging to John Milliken dehvered to 
him of date 1792 is in my possession. There were three cliiidren, named as 
follows : 

I. John Furxess, b. July 5, 1747. 

n. Bexjamix Furxess, b. Dec. iS, 174S, "merchant" in Boston, 17S1. 
rn. Mary Furxess, mentioned in the ••^^lilliken Covenant." 

2. John Milliken* (3), eldest son of John^ (2), and Sarah Burnett, b. in Boston, 
Mass., Aug. 27, 1 72 1, d. there when a child. 

3. John Milliken* (4), second son of John^ (2), and Sarah Burnett, b. in Boston, 
Mass., Feb. 17. 1723; was m. to Eleaxor (Libby) Sallis, widow of Benjamin 
Sallis of Beach Point. Scarborough, Me., Aug. 6, 1761. He d. in 1766, and his 
widow found it necessary to soUcic aid from her father-in-law, as the following 
letter will show. He had three children, of whom more with 5th generation. 

" Honored Sir: — I ask the favor of you for liberty to enclose and improve the 
piece of land on that side of the Road where I Uve in order to raise some corn 
and roots, and hay for my Cov,-. towards support of myself and children, and

that I may not be disturbed therein or pre^•ented by others. Your granting my 
request in'behalf of myself and your grand-children will much obhge your Daugh- 
ter-in-Law, ' ' Eleaxor Millikex. 

To Mr. John Millikex. (Signed) Johx Millikex." 

4. Thomas Milliken* (2), third son of John^ (2), and Sarah Burnett, b. in Boston, 
May 31, 1724; m. Sar.\h Tno^tipsox of Boston, Nov. 4, 1752, by whom live 
children. She d. in 1774. We have no proof to show that he ever came to 
Scarborough with his father's family. He was engaged in merchandising in 
Boston at the outbreak of the Revolution, and had a large brick house and store 
combined, as was then a custom with merchants who did a small business; tliis 
was located " only a few doors from Mountfort's Corner at the foot of North 
Square." Like some others of the Milliken family, Thomas was an ardent Roy- 
alist, and being the owner of a tract of land and part of a saw-mill, where the 
city of Ellsv.-orth now stands, he left his younger children in care of his eldest 
daughter, Abigail, then but recently m. to a Frenchman named David \'aUette, 
who was at sea, and joined his kinsman, Benjamin Mihiken, with whom he 
was associated in business, in Maine. Dr. Snow, in his valuable History of Bos- 
ton, writing of those troublesome days during the Revolution, says: 

"The solemnity of these sad times was heightened by the occurrence of a fire, 
on Wednesday, Aug. loth. It broke out. between 10 and 11 p.m., in a large 
brick dwelling-house belonging to Mr. Milliken and Mrs. Campbell, in Fish 
Street, five or six doors north of Mountfort's Corner, at the foot of North Square. 
The lower part of the house was in tiames before the distressed tenants were 


apprised of it. Several escaped out of the windows, some naked and much 
burnt, and five others perished in the flames, three women and two children. 
The house was entirely consumed, with part of a bakehouse. The inhabitants 
speedily assembUng, with their usual dexterous manap;ement, happily put a 
stop to the further progress of the flames. Earl Percy politely offered the services 
of some soldiers who could be depended upon, but was informed that the regu- 
lation of the town rendered their assistance unnecessary.'' 

The following , written by a lady So years of age, a granddaughter of 
Thomas Milliken. speaks for itself: 

" Mr. MiUiken, a Scotchman by birth and a warm Royalist, was considered 
a Tory, and as he owned a farm and part of a miU at the eastward he determined 
to leave Boston. Previous to his departure he let a part of his house to a Mrs. 
Murphey, the wife of Captain Murphey, then at sea; and in the care of Mrs. 
Vallette, his poor lame daughter with a broken back, he left her two Uttle sisters, 
Mrs. \'allette was then twenty years old and had been m. tu'C or three weeks; 
her husband was at sea. 

" Captain Murphey arrived home on the loth of August, 1774, and his wife 
invited some friends to supper in the evening. The supper was cooked in a room 
where there had been no fire for many years, if ever, and there was probably a 
fault in the chimney. Mrs. Vallette had some of her acquaintance to drink tea 
and pass the evening, which detained her up later than usual. She had retired 
to her chamber, was undressed, and sat by the side of her bed taking oJ? her 
stockings when she heard the cry of "Fire I' immediately under her v\-indow. 
'Get up, get up, your house is in flames!' Raising her eyes she saw the Ught 
bursting into her chamber, and catching the arm of her little sister, who lay 
sleeping, she dragged her to the door, opened it, and found the stairs on fire. 
Still holding on to her sister, who was hardly yet awake, with presence of mind 
she shut the door and made for the window, where the crowd outside were hold- 
ing up beds and screaming, 'Jump, jump!' After pushing and almost throw- 
ing her bewildered sister from the window, she stepped back and took from a 
chair a dress to wrap around her, as she was only in her night clothes, but it 
caught in the hinge of the window shutter and was left behind. When Mrs. 
\'allette jumped from the window, she fell into the arms of a colored man who 
had formerly lived with her father, and struck with such weight upon his stom- 
ach that he never recovered from the blow. Mrs. Murphey, when she saw the 
flames coming into her room, partly undressed, and her husband had only 
taken off his coat. As the stairs were winding, and he was unacquainted with 
the house, she immediately took his arm and led him to the bottom of the stairs; 
then returning for her children, perished with them in the flames. Mrs. Mur- 
phey was seen coming to the window v.-ith a child in her arms, when a bed was 
held up, and the cry was, 'Throw your child, if you cannot come yourself!' but 
from that moment she was seen no more. Two elderly ladies, members of her 
family, hkewise perished in the flames. One of these, named Gill, was aunt to 
a gendeman who was afterwards governor or lieutenant-governor of Massachu- 
setts. The name of the other old lady was King. Fanny Clark, a faithful 
domestic who had lived m Mr. Milliken's family many years, was badly burned, 
but escaped with her life. James Milliken, the only brother of ^Irs. Vallette 
(at home), had been to wait on some of his sister's company home. When he 
heard the alarm of fire, he was at the head of what was then called Seven Star 
Lane, which is now Summer Street. He ran at once toward home, and on 


reaching the house found it almost wholly consumed. He could get no tidings 
of his sisters. Some said all the inmates in the house were burned up; others, 
that a small woman had been seen to jump out of the window and was nearly if 
not quite killed. The young man, accompanied by some of his friends, searched 
the streets in a state of almost utter distraction, and when informed before morn- 
ing that his sisters were safe refused to beUeve it. They had found shelter with 
a family named Holland. 

" The scene of the ruins the following morning, as described to the writer by 
an eye-witness, was heart-rending. When James Milliken came to the ruins and 
saw Mrs. Vallette with one of his httle sisters, he screamed aloud, crying out, 
'Where, where is Polly?' forgetting that the child was on a visit from home. 
'Safe, safe, dear brother; she is away and has saved her clothes,' rephed his 
sister. He still went around in a state of Httle less than distraction, saying, 
'Sister, yesterday we had a home; to-day we have none: no mother, father away, 
and our country ruined.' In this way he raved on, until a gentleman, in whose 
store, on Long Wharf, he was an apprentice, came through the crowd, and taking 
him by the arm forced him into a carriage with his sisters and took them to his 
house, where kind and soothing attention and care brought James to himself 
again; not, however, until the youngest child was brought into his presence. 

" Every article of clothing and furniture in a few short hours had been swept 
away; silver melted to dross; valuable papers and the records of family concern, 
so highly prized by succeeding generations, together with old-fashioned brocade 
silks, left by grandmothers and great-grandmothers, were all gone; yet ^Irs. \'al- 
lette was heard to say, in after-days, that when looking over this utter desolation 
nothing afitected her so much as seeing the cage of a favorite parrot her husband 
had brought her, the first voyage he went to sea, kicking about the ruins. The 
husband of :Mrs. \'allette had amply provided for her during his absence, so that 
she could draw a sufiiciency, not only for herself, but her poor, desolate sisters. 

"James Milliken, though only nineteen years old, was a zealous patriot, and 
had aheady performed many small ser\ice5 for his country. He was well known 
to Messrs. Dennie, -Mohneux, Procter, and other gentlemen v^ho had been deeply 
engaged in the Revolutionary movement. Every possible attention was paid to 
the young man and much sympathy felt for his sisters. As Boston was in such a 
troubled state, they were advised to go to reside in Lexington, where they had 
friends, with which advice thev immediately complied. 

" In April, 1775, Mrs. X'alletteand her friend, Mrs. Reed, were sittingin the 
evening at their home at Lexington over a few dying em.bers, v.ith their infants 
in their arms. The clock had struck eleven. Guns had been heard through the 
day. The firing had ceased, and they sat talking of the perils of the times when 
Mrs. Reed said, ' Hark, I hear footsteps!' — ' It is only the rasthng of the trees,' 
said Mrs. \'allette, 'and we will not be needlessly alarmed,' pressing at the same 
time her infant closer to her heart, as if fearful it might be wrested from her, and 
tr>-ing to assume a courage which she did not feel. At that momenta gentle rap 
at the door was heard. "Who is there r asked Mrs. Reed, in tremulous tones. 
'Friends,' rephed a low voice, speaking through the small hole where the cord 
had been drawn in to prevent the lifting of the latch out.-ide, for few had locks 
and keys in those simple times. They immediately opened the door, and three 
men entered in profound silence, each muffled in a long cloak. 'Do not be 
alarmed, ladies,' said one, in the same lov,- tone of voice; ' we are friends to our 
country and are pursued by the enemy; we have hid in the woods through the 


day, and have come to seek your bounty and a shelter for the night.' — 'And 
these you should have with all my heart,' said Mrs. Reed, whose countenance 
brightened up when she found that instead of the dreaded enemy her guests were 
thosedistinguished patriots. John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and Paul Revere; 'but ' 
she continued, 'you would not be safe here a moment, ^^'hy, the Red-coats are 
prowling around us in every direction; they were here only yesterday, eating all 
my pies, and bread and cheese; and because they could not find enough at my 
neighbor's to satisfy their hunger, they must needs rip open their beds, and leave 
their cider running out. O sir, these are dreadful times I' — 'Thev are indeed, 
madam,' said Mr. Hancock. 'But, gentlemen,' he said, turning to his com- 
panions, 'what shall we do, for it is certain we are not safe here?' They looked 
at each other but did not speak. 'Have you any neighbors,' asked Mr. PTan- 
cock, ' where we might find safety for the night ? ' — ' None except mv father ' 
replied Mrs. Reed, 'who lives five miles off, on the main road. It 'would be 
dangerous for you to go by the road, and you would not find your way throut^h 
the woods, and we have neither man nor boy to guide you; they have all Tone 
to fight the Red-coats.' — 'Will you stay alone and nurse my baby,' asked Mrs. 
Vallette of her friend, 'while I go and show the gentlemen the wav?' She an- 
swered, ' I will do so, though it is sad to be alone in such dangerous times. But 
you must not go; you are not able; you are lame, and never walked a mile at once 
in your Ufe; you must not think of going on this wet night.' ^Mrs. \'allette made 
no reply. She knew there was not a moment to be lost, so laying her infant in 
the arms of her friend, she wrapped her riding-hood around her and desired the 
gentlemen to follow her. When they saw this deformed little woman, not more 
than four feet high, prepared to walk a distance of over three miles, they looked 
at each other in mute astonishment, but not a word was spoken, for the case was 
desperate. Mrs. \'allette taking the offered arm of Mr. Hancock, they went 
forward, the other two gentlemen bringing up the rear. The rain, which had 
fallen for som.e days previous, had so swelled the brooks that the gentlemen were 
obliged at times to lift Mrs. \'allette over them. Thus wading and walkin<y, 
they reached the farmhouse about 3 o'clock in the morning. Xo sooner had 
they aroused the fam.ily and made known who they were and what thev wanted, 
than ever}' individual was up and in motion; and even the dog tried to show them 
by his gestures that they should find protection. A blazing fire soon shone forth, 
and a plentiful repast was provided; and notwithstanding the gloominess of the 
times, a degree of cheerfulness and even humor pervaded the little comipanv. 
At early dawn a carriage was prepared to convey Mrs. \'aliette home to her 
infant. Mr. Hancock politely Hfted her into the carriage and said, ' Madam, our 
first meeting has been in troublesome times. God only knows when these scenes 
will end, but should we survive the struggle, and you should ever need a friend, 
think of me.' 

" About two months from this event the battle of Bunker Hill was fou-^ht. 
There James Milliken fell mortally wounded, was taken prisoner, and, with sev- 
eral others, was thrown into a cart and conveyed to the jail, which then stood in 
Prison Lane, now Court Street. Here he lingered, destitute of care and atten- 
tion, and even the necessaries of life, until he went down to an early grave, at 
the age of twenty, and was soon forgotten amidst the horrors of war. Several 
gentlemen went to the prison, wishing to see him, but were not permitted." 

Thomas Milliken had made his way, accompanied by his son Joseph, to 
Union River, now Ellsworth, Me. The loss of his house, store, and goods, nearly 


ruined him financially. The mills and lands owned in company with his cousin, 
Benjamin Milliken. were confiscated and he was left a poor man and a refugee. 
He probably went with other Royalists into Xew Brunswick until after the Revo- 
lution closed. He married his second wife, Mary .McKenney of Frankfort, 
Me., in 1777. by whom he had six children, probably born in Surry, now Ells- 
worth. While these children were still young, their father died. The widow 
was m. to Joseph Carr of Frankfort, by whom she had six children. See 5th 

5. Sarah Milliken^ (1), second daughter of John' (2), and Sarah Burnett, b. 
Apr. 29, 1725, was said to have married to one of the Scarborough C.^rlls and 
become the ancestress of all of this name in the State; but no record of such union 
has been found, and I doubt. She was m. Sept. iS, 1746, to Joseph Hodgdox, 
who was administrator of her father's estate. These had a son whose posterity 
lived in Saco.

I. John Milliken^ (5). eldest son of John'' (4), b. in Scarborough, ISTe.. 1760: m. 
Christiana Mitchell of North Yarmouth. He entered the army during the 
Revolution and ser\ed until the war closed. He was a tanner by trade, resided 
in Yarmouth more than twenty years, and built several vessels which he freighted 
to the West Indies. He acquired considerable wealth by navigation, but three 
or more of his vessels were taken b}- the French, and his heirs were mterested in 
the spoliation claims, so many years before Congress. He removed to Belfast. !Me.. 
in 1802, where he built a store, tavern, and the finest mansion-house then in the 
town. From Belfast he renioved to Montville, Me., where he owned a tannery 
and a large farm. He d. there Dec. 24, 184S, aged 87, and his wife. b. 1764, d. 
Aug. 8, 1854, aged 90. Ten children of whom with 6th generation. 

The Spoliation Claims. 
John ^lilliken owned shares in five vessels which were seized b\' the French. 
There were schooners "Union," "Sally." and "Susanna," the brig "Neptune,"' 
and the sloop "Jane." Hon. Seth L. ^lilliken introduced a bill in the House of 
Representatives for the claims to be adjudicated by the U. S. Court of Claims: 
this passed the House and Senate and was approved by President McKinley. 
The Court of ClaimiS reported favorably to Congress on one vessel in which ^Ir. 
Milliken owned one-half, namely, the schooner " Union," and half of the cargo. 
An appropriation was made by Congress to pay this claim, and 81,833.50 was 
awarded to Hon. Seth L. ^Nlilliken as "administrator de bonis non" of his grand- 
father's will. But he d. before the iinal approval of the act; and at the request 
of other relatives principally interested in the "will," Noel Byron Milliken, a 
brother of the Congressman, was appointed administrator, and to him after many 
delays the money was pjaid. He made payments to about 40 heirs and devisees. 
After further investigation it was found that one of the vessels named had been 
paid for while John Milhken was living. Another, the brig "Neptune," was 
claimed by other parties, who were adjudged owners and the money awarded 
them. In the other two cases the attorney said: "No papers but the petitions 
have been filed, and no claims are filed by other parties for losses on the same 
ves.sels. I can find no record of any papers on file v.-hich would go to prove the 
losses on these vessels, and I am unable to see, therefore, that anything further 
can be done about these claims." 


2. Benjamin Milliken' (2), second son of John^ (4), b. in Scarborough, ^le., 
1764; m., ist, Elizabeth Babbridge. by whom he had ten children. Shed, in 
North Yarmouth, Me., in 1S07, and was there interred. He m.. second (pub- 
lished Mar. 25, 1S09), Mrs. Lvdia, widow of Jeremiah Bean of ]\[ontville. Me., 
by whom two children. He was a farmer, tanner, and currier, hving in Buck- 
field village, where he d. Sept. 20, 18 iS. His Avidow became the v/ife of John 
Dillingham of Xorth Auburn, but was buried by the remains of ^Ir. MiUiken in 
Buckfield. See 6th generation. 

3. Josiah Milliken'^ (2), third son of John^ (4), b. in 1766, was living in Scarbor- 
ough, Me., where he was b., when the Milliken Covenant was made in 1792, 
and was afterwards lost at sea. He was probably named for Josiah Milhken, 
son of John and Eleanor, of Boston. 


1. Abigail Milliken^ (1), eldest daughter of Thomas' (2), b. in Boston, Mass. 
Jan., 1753; was m. in ]May, 1774, to David Vallette of Boston, whose trade 
was that of ship-cooper. He was of Huguenot descent. They were attendants 
of Christ's Church, in the tower of which Paul Revere hung his lantern during 
the Revolution. David Vallette d. in 17SS. He sen-ed in the Revolution during 
several enUstments. His wife survived until Jan. 21, 179S, when she d. of con- 
sumption, aged 45 years, as recorded in Christ's Church register. She took out 
papers of administration. Her children, as far as known, were named as follows: 

I. DA^^D Vallette, bapt. Feb. 2, 1779, d. in childhood. 

n. N.ABBY Vallette, bapt. Feb. 2, 1779, m. BEXjAmN Warrex of Rox- 
bury, Mass., July 3, iSoi, and had issue, a son being Rev. Henry 
Vallette Warren. 

in. Peter Vallette, bapt. Aug. 3, 17S3 (b. in May), m. Harriet A. Smith 
Broxsdox*, dau. of Bant and Deborah (Jackson) Bronsdon of Boston, 
and had nine children. He learned the coach-trimmer's trade, and 
commenced business for himself on Boston Common Street, but in 1814 
removed with his family to Cincinnati, O., then only a hamlet, where he 
established himself in the business of manufacturing vehicles and coach- 
trimming. He and wife were charter members of the First Baptist 
Church, and he a deacon until his death. Their descendants are nu- 
merous throughout the West, and are intelligent and respected. 

rv. Mary Millikex \'allette, youngest child of David and Abigail, was 
b. in 1787. She was a woman of unusual m.ental qualities, being a 
teacher in the early schools of Boston. She wrote and published books 
and edited a magazine. In 1S39-40, she visited her family in Cincin- 
nati, O., the journey being ver}" fatiguing. She was a member of the 
Swedenborgian Church in Boston, being admitted in 1830. She d. un- 
married at the home of her sister, Mrs. Warren, in Roxbury. 

2. James Milliken' (1), eldest son of Thomas* (2), b. in Boston in 1755, '"'as an 
ardent patriot who fell, mortally wounded, in the battle of Bunker Hill. He was 
captured by the British and soon died of his wounds and deprivations, aged 20 
years. For particulars read preceding sketch written by his kinswoman. 

3. Polly MiUiken'^ (1), daughter of Thomas* (2), and Sarah Thomas, was younger 
than the preceding, and was a child, with another sister whose name does not 
appear, under the care of Mrs. Vallette in 1774, when her father went to Union 


River, now Ellsworth, Me. She was carried from Boston to Lexington durino- 
the Revolution, and may have been brought up by relatives under an adopted 
name. Much correspondence, persistent search, and extensive advertising have 
failed to find the descendants of these two sisters. 

4. Joseph Milliken' (2). second son of Thomas^ (2), b.. in Boston in 1769; 
went with his father to Union River, now Ellsv/orth, Me., in 1774, when a lad.

He d. in Cherry-field. Me., July 8, 1891, leaving one son. He received his 
education in the pubUc schools of his native tov.Ti and in Ellsworth, and was a 
student at \\aterM'lle Academy, which was changed to Water\-ille Classical In- 
stitute. He taueht scho<;l for several years at Ellsv\orth and in various towns in 
Washington and Hancock counties. When eighteen years of age he was ap- 
prenticed to learn the ma-on's trade, and worked at it for many years, devoting 
his leisure hours to study. He prepared for the ministry and preached as a Uni- 
versalist, being an earnest advocate of the creed. He resided in Columbia until 
1855, when he removed to Cherr\-field. ^^'hile UWng in the former town he was 
serving in some official capacity much of the time. He was justice of the peace, 
and did considerable business as a conveyancer and probate writer. He studied 
law in the office of George F. Talbot, was admitted to the Washington County 
bar in 1855, and immediately opened an office in Cherr>-field. He formed a 
copartnership with Frederick I. Campbell, in i83o, which was continued until 
his death. Pic was first selectman and treasurer in Cherr}-fie]d for many years. 


He manifested a warm interest in the cause of education, and was trustee for the 
academy in his town; also trustee for the Washington County Academy, one of 
the oldest institutions of its class in the state. 

He was originally an earnest member of the Free Soil party, and in 1S54 was 
the candidate for Congressman. The vote was so close that he contested the 
seat, but not successfully; many, however, believed he was elected. At the 
formation of the Republican party he cast his lot with them, and was e\-er after- 
wards a stanch defender of those grand principles for which the party was 
disUnguished. He was a faithful supporter of the Union cause during the Re- 
bellion, and after the war represented his district as an active member in the Legis- 
lature. He was associated with Hon. Dennis L.Milliken, his kinsman, as commis- 
sioner on the Equalization of Municipal War Debts. as chairman; this laborious 
and responsible position he tilled with fidelity to the State and honor to himself. 

In 1873 he became judge of probate, and was re-elected to that ot^ce every 
four years from that date until the spring of iSSS, when he was stricken with 
paralysis, from which he never recovered, and resigned his scat. 

Judge Milliken was a competent land surveyor, and assisted the United States 
-engineers in establishing the base line which the government located in Cherry- 
Held and Columbia. 

He was genial, kind, and conversational. While he was a fearless advocate of 
his religious, political, and legal opinions, he courteously conceded to his oppo- 
nents their own rights. He was a man of strict integrity and tireless energy; a 
diligent student, strong in reasoning and able as an advocate. As a citizen he 
^vas highly esteemed and useful; as a homemakcr, husband, and father, an emi- 
iient model. 

He possessed a strong literary taste, and wrote much on genealogy and local 
liistory, of which pastime he was fond.

The following biographical sketch was adapted from the Memorial Address of 
Hon. C. Burleigh on the Life and Character of Hon. Seth L. Milliken: 

The career of Seth L. ]\Iilliken vividly and forcibly illustrates the possibihties 
of American citizenship. The honored position he attained in the councils of 
the nation was due in no degree to the accident of birth or fortuitous circum- 
stances. From the age of 14 years, when he left his countr\' home to secure an 
education, with $3, which his grandmother had given him from her Revolutionary 
War pension — the only contribution for this purpose he ever had — and walked 
40 miles to save stage fare, he was wholly the architect of his own fortunes.

To a youth of less resolute rr.ould and tenacity of purpose, the obstacles in his 
way would have seemed insurmountable; but though his tinancial resources were 
meagre, he was not without capital. He had inherited a vigorous constitution, 
and hard work in the open air amid the rugged hills of his native town had given 
him the buoyancy of good health and taught him habits of industry that he re- 
tained through life. When scarcely emerged from childhood he took up the 
burdens of life without experience in worldly affairs and with no resources save 
his untiring industry. He had his own way to make in the world, and the de- 
tailed story of his struggles and his triumphs might well serve as a source of 
inspiration to the youth of America. 

In 1S56 ^Ir. Milliken graduated from Union College in Schenectady, X.Y., 
after ha\ing a three years' course at what is now "Colby University" in his own 
State. Six weeks later he was elected to the Maine House of Representatives, 
and returned (by re-election) the following }ear. Thus in early hfe he acquired 
a knowledge of legislative procedure which proved of great assistance and value 
to him in later years. 

In 1858 Mr. MiUiken was elected clerk of the Supreme Judicial Court for his 
native county. While serving in this capacity he pursued the study of law with 
Hon. Nehemiah Abbott and Judge Dickerson of Belfast, two of the most emi- 
nent lawyers of Maine, and was admitted to the bar in 1871. He earlv acquired 
a wide reputation as a ready and effective political speaker, and his services were 
in great demand in times of political emergency both in and out of his own State. 
(He was three times re-elected clerk of courts, and after serving 12 years he de- 
clined another nomination for that office.) 

Prior to his election to Congress he had travelled nearly 30,000 miles in present- 
ing the principles of his party to popular audiences. The intimate acquaintance 
he thus secured with pubhc men and measures furnished an excellent equipment 
for subsequent duties as a member of this House. 

During his long and distinguished service here he was a painstaking and 
conscientious Representative, thoroughly devoted to the interests of his con- 
stituents; and that they fully appreciated his labors in their behalf is evidenced 
by eight consecutive elections v/ith constantly increasing majorities. 

Mr. Milhken came of good stock. On the paternal side he was of Scotch de- 
scent. His maternal ancestors were the Counts of Perigaux, who were promi- 
nently identified with the history of France. He thus inherited the best charac- 
teristics of two strong races — from his father a strong will, tenacity of purpose, 
and marked power of analysis; from, his mother a poetical temperament, innate 
courtesy, and a ready wit. It is to the combination of these qualities that we mav 
trace his notable success as a pubhc speaker and his happy faculty of making and 
retaining strong friendships. 

During the latter years of his life my relations with him were very close and 
intimate, and I had an opportunity to know and appreciate those indefinable at- 
tributes, that attractive charm of personahty, which make up the subtle quality 
we call magnetism. 

He was a gifted and pleasant speaker. With a fine presence he combined a 
strong, well-miodulated voice and grace of diction. He had an extensive vocab- 
ulary, and spoke with fluency and ease. He possessed the power of clear and 
cogent statement, and carried his arguments home to his hearers with trenchant 
force. While he clothed his thoughts for the most part in plain, strong words of 
Anglo-Sa.xon origin, his broad culture enabled him on occasions to embellish 
them with the beauties of classical hterature and the graces of poetry. 


His manners at all times were courteous and affable, and he was never placed at 
a disadvantage in public discussion by irritability of temper. He had a keen 
sense of humor and an apparently inexhaustible fund of anecdotes, upon which 
he could always draw to illustrate his points with happy effect in gaining the good 
will and holding the attention of his audiences. 

He was quick in repartee, and yet one — 

"Whose wit in the combat as gentle as bright 
Ne'er carried a heartstain away on its blade." 

Mr. ]\rilliken was a natural scholar. He was impatient, it is true, of the more 
laborious processes of intellectual acquisition. He apparently had the power of 
absorbing knowledge. His mind was enriched with stores of information gleaned 
from a wide and varied reading, especially in Unes of historical research, for which 
he had a strong hking. 

He had a faculty of mentally classifying the facts he assimilated in their rela- 
tions to other facts. He was a close observer of events, and his wonderfully 
retentive memory rendered constantly available for any emergency his stores of 

All who knew Scth L. Milliken can bear truthful testimony that he was a man 
of catholic spirit. His sympathies were broad. He loved the society of his fellow- 
men, and was tolerant in all things. There was in his nature no trace of snobbery 
or affectation. 

He was always accessible, genial, and loyal, ^^"hile he was all his Hfe a 
strong partisan with a firm behef in the necessity of party organization and dis- 
cipline as a factor in republican government, he was singularly free from, political 
rancor, and never permitted the intensity of his political convictions to affect the 
amenities of his social relations with men of opposing views. Wliile strongly tena- 
cious of his own opinions, and ever ready to champion them upon all proper 
occasions, he was never lacking in respect for the honest convictions of those 
who differed with him on questions of public pohcy. 

Few men in public Hfe have ever possessed a finer tact in dealing with others, 
or a more thorough mastery of the art of conciliation. It was not his nature 
to treasure resentments. Intensely Am.erican in all his views, he blended pru- 
dence with patriotism. Accustomed to look upon the bright side of life, he 
had an abiding love for his countr}- and profound faith in its future. 

He died as he had lived, '' in the harness." In the meridian of his pov.ers and 
in the unimpaired possession of all his faculties he was called suddenly from 
the activities of a busy hfe, from its duties, its hopes, its aspirations, to 
"The lone couch of his everiasting sleep." 

The sorrow of his untimely death was shared by all classes. The pulpit and the 
press have united in giving expression to the popular sense of bereavement and 
in paying eloquent tribute to his memon,'.

Hail, Camden, the home of good health and good cheer, 
The charming resort from afar and from near! 
Sky, mountains and valleys and waters, I hail, 
I once loved to clamber, to ramble, to sail. 

I long to return to the home of my youth, 

WTiere springtime and summer, and autumn, forsooth, 

In beauty and loveliness smile on the scene. 

With woodlands and hillsides all decked out with green; 

Or gold in September, and crimson and fire. 
And flowers and fountains and fruits to desire. 
The rays of the morning and sunset's red light. 
Disclosing a picture to charm and delight; 

Where mists clothe the mountains when east winds prevail, 
And round off the crag-peaks that show through the veil, 
Like maidens' fair shoulders and figures of grace, 
When clad in white raiment and rich, airy lace. 

1573 i7J 


How sweet are the memories, how golden the dreams, 
Of that humble homestead, landscape and streams! 
WTien often I visit her shores and her hills. 
The prospect seems fairer, the balminess thrills; 

The moonbeams more brilliant, the shadows grow deep, 
The echo's sound clearer, the hillsides grow steep, 
Reflecting in waters more crystal and bright, 
And wavelets that shimmer with silver}- light. 

To ride on the "Turnpike" through archways of green, 
WTiere precipice lofty bursts forth "on the scene, 
Or crags high above seem to threaten and frown. 
And into the lake's mirrored waters look down.

for four years. He established himself in Portland in 1856, and has since carried 
on the wholesale grocery business on Commercial Street. His brothers were

of the finance committee. He was appointed Collector of Customs for Portland, 
and was filling this important position at the time of his death, which event oc- 
curred Nov. 19, 1899. He was a notable success in the various departments of 
his extensive business enterprises, and has served with eminent ability in the re- 
sponsible positions of a more public character to v.hich he was called. He 
was long recognized as one of Portland's most worthy citizens and solid business

Shaw & Co. was with their successors. True «8c Frothingham. about three years. 
He was ne.xt associated with F. .\. Shaw & Co., in the grocer}- joljbing business, for 
two years. He then engaged in the wholesale grocery business, under the name 
of C. R. Milliken, for about two years. At this time his brother. Weston F., was 
associated in business with Charles Shaw, and when his term of partnership ex- 
pired, Weston F. and Charles R. united under the style of W. & C. R. MilHken, 
and until 18S9 they successfully carried on the grocery and r.our business. Charles 
R. Milliken took charge of the Glen House at the White Mountains then owned 
by the firm, and managed that popular establishment from the date of the pur- 
chase until July, 1S93, ^^hen it was destroyed by fire. In 1881, in company 
with the late H. X. Jose and the late G. E. Spring, Charles R. Milliken purchased 
the Portland Rolling Mill; and they organized a cc)rporation. of which he was 
elected president and manager. In 1887 he bought the Dennison Paper Manu- 
facturing Company's plant at Mechanic Falls, Me., which he afterwards sold 
to a corporation called the Poland Paper Company, of which he was elected 
Treasurer and Manager. In the before-named responsible positions he has 
served efficiently and successfully for manv vears. He is also a director of the 
Electric Light Company of the city and of the Portland Company's locomotive 
works. Mr. Milliken is widely known as one of the most enterj^rising and solid 
business men of Portland. He exemplifies in a marked de.mee the character-

2, 1S89. 

He remained at home among Xew Hampshire's granite hills until his sixteenth 
year, when he went to Troy, N. Y., and learned the blacksmith's trade with his 
uncle, xArthur Milliken. In 1836. he went to Chicago and opened a shop in 
which he did most of the work of Fink & Walker, who ran a line of stages west 
from Chicago into the country-. 

During his leisure hours he read law, and, although never a regular attorney, his 
knowledge of books was by no means meagre. He was popular with his fellow- 
citizens and gradually drifted into political currents. Before the Civil War he 
was a Democrat, but he favored abohtion and went over to the RepubHcan partv 
when the strife began and remained a staunch defender of its principles until his 
death. He was one of the pioneers of Cook Co., 111., and long before the war 
had rendered important service to the county and city. 

Chief among the responsible official positions filled by him was that of Mayor, 
to which office he was elected Mar. 13, 1S54. For two terms he served as Alder- 
man, and acted as assistant County Judge in 1883. During the Civil War he 
was in the service of the government, acting as Commissioner of Enrollment for 
the city of Chicago through the entire period until the peace. For a long term 
of years after he was mayor, he filled the chair of PoUce Justice with honesty and 

He owned a large farm at Monee, 111., and after his retirement from public life 
he spent much of his time upon it, taking a great interest in its management up 
to a short time before his death. 

The following account of his funeral is taken from "The Daily Inter Ocean," 
Dec. 6, 1889. 

Ex-Mayor Milliken's Funeral. 

The funeral of the late Isaac L. Milliken was held yesterday afternoon at the 
Central Church of Christ, on Indiana Avenue, near Thirty-seventh Street, of 
which Mr. Milliken was a mem.ber, the Rev. W. F. Black otBciating. The church 
was filled early with friends of Mr. Milliken, and shortly after the hour appointed, 
a large delegation from William B. Warren Lodge, A. F. and A. M., under com- 
mand of Charles Rankin, Master, entered the church. The honorarv pall- 
bearers were as follows: C. E. Peck, E. Mannierre, J. Trainor, S. W." King, 
Samuel Bial, Jerre Courtright, J. E. Stafford, A. L. Sherman, J. K. C. Forrest, 
William Wayman, L. T. Hilliard, S. Sayers, S. Rankin. The actual pall-bearers, 


ers, appointed by William B. Warren Lodsie, were as follows: C. A. Fee, O. A. 
Campbell, G. H. Harris, W. R. Howard, W illiam Sharp, and P. E. Rathbone. 

The City Council was represented by Mayor Cregier and the following .Alder- 
men: Vierling, Madden, Pond. Ha\'nes, Webber, Jackson, Dickson, Horner, 
Kelly, Kinney, Long, and Hepburn. W. J. Onahan accompanied the Mayor. 
Besides these two delegations there were a number of old citizens, among whom 
were Philip A. Hoyne, John Fergus, T. Rankin. William Harper, Jerre Court- 
right, J. F. Stafford, J. Y. Scammon, C. DeWolf. C. T. Boggs, Joseph Gray, 
Samuel Ellis, Charles Harpell, A. H. Blackall, and Henry Sayres. 

Shortly after i o'clock the services were begun by singing by the church quartet, 
after which the ser\-ices were conducted by the Rev. Black, who delivered an ad- 
dress full of feeling over his old friend. He said: ''Blessed are the dead that die 
in the Lord, for their works will follow them, thus saith Revelation. Life and 
death are so entwined that as soon as we begin to live we begin to die, reminding 
one of the shortness of life and the certainty of death. It is the destiny of every 
person here. Mr. MiUiken was a good laborer. Born Aug. 31, 1813, in New 
England, he came to Chicago in 1S36, and in 1854 he was elected flavor of your 
city, and he filled several official positions. He served you well and has your 
praises now for the services. The younger men of this audience may regard his 
life as an example to follow. It is better to live well than to live long, but when like 
him who lies here, we can live well and live long, too, then it is a life well spent." 

The quartet then sang a hymn, after which the audience passed by the remains 
and out of the church. The William B. Warren Lodge delegation took charge 
of the body and bore it from the church to Rose Hill, where it was interred in 
the Milliken lot with appropriate Masonic ceremonies. 

At a meeting of the Chicago City Council held Dec. 11, 18S9, Aldermen Dixon, 
Campbell, and Cullerton. the special committee on resolutions, offered the fol- 
lowing memorial in honor of the late Isaac L. Milliken: — 

Whereas, It has pleased the All-wise Providence to call to Himself Isaac 
L. Milliken, ex-Mayor of this city, one of her early pioneers. 

Whereas, The Hon. Isaac L. Milliken, during his active and honorable life ren- 
dered such services in the early history of this city as to endear his memory to 
every citizen of this city and State, lending his efforts and inlluence in all matters 
calculated to develop her capacity for future prosperity, and to make this city 
the great center of the Northwest: therefore be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of Chicago res-pectfully tender to the bereaved 
family of the late Isaac L. Milliken our sincere and heartfelt sympathy in their 
sad bereavement; and be it further 

Resolved, That these resolutions be spread upon the records of this Council, 
and that a copy of the same be engrossed and forwartied to the family of the de- 
ceased. The resolutions were adopted by a rising vote.

5. Moses S. Milliken' (1), third son of Amos" (1), was b. in EiTmgham. X. H., 
iVLay 27, 1820; m. July 11, 1S41, to Lucy A. Clark. He was a boy of fifteen or 
sixteen when the family moved back to Saco, Me., where he learned the baker's 
trade, at which he worked for several years. He then became a stone mason 
and was employed in building the foundation of some of the Biddeford ^Mills, 
and was also employed by the York >Lanufacturing Company in Saco for a num- 
ber of years. For eleven vears he was on the police force of Biddeford. He 
enhsted in the 27th Maine Regiment, and served about ten months, and upon 
his return embarked in the retail meat and provision business, which he continued 
for eighteen years till he retired to his farm in Biddeford. He served on the 
Board of Alderm.en in the city for three years. He was always interested in farm- 
ing and belonged to the York County Agricultural Society, at one time serving 
as its Treasurer and Trustee. He was a communicant of the Foss Street Metho- 
dist Church in Biddeford. and at the time of his death was one of its Trustees. 
He also belonged to the Sheridan Post of the Grand Army. He d. Xov. 17, 1888, 
aged 68 yrs. odd. Lucy A., his wife. d. Xov. 21, 1S91, aged 71 yrs., 3 mos. 
Interred in Greenwood Cemetery. Biddeford. 

Mr. MiUiken was a man of stroncr and settled convictions and a patriotic and 
respected citizen. He possessed a discriminating mind and was found on the 
right side of all great moral questions. 

To this couple were b. seven children, of whom with the 8th generation. 

6. David Milliken" (1), fourth son of Amos" (1), was b. in Effingham. X. H., 
Nov. 17, 1822; m. Apr. 5, 1844, to Philexa Jane Johxson". He passed his 
boyhood for ten or twelve years with his parents in Freedom and Eaton, X. H. 

Going to Maine when a boy, he attended the public schools and Westbrook 
Seminary, and when about eighteen years of age let himself for a term of two 
years to a Scotchman, by the name of Captain Wright, who had charge of the 
dyeing for the York ^Llnufactur^ne Company of Saco. The compensation for 
his services agreed upon being "Sixty Dollars ($60) a year and instruction in the 


art of dyeing." After learning his trade he worked at it most of the time for sev- 
eral years. The only exception being that he taught school several winters. 

In the winter of 1852-53 he went to Lewiston, Me., to take charge of the 
dyeing in the new mill of the Bates Manufacturing Company just starting up, 
and remained there as overseer until the fall of 1S55, when he went West, spend- 
ing the winter in Chicago, clerking and reading law in the office of his brother, 
Judge Milliken. In the sprmg of '56, he went to Monee, Will Co., 111., about 
thirty-six miles south of Chicago, and engaged in farming. For the next seven 
or eight years he carried on a farm, and at the same time represented his tov,-n 
on the Board of Supervisors of Will Co.; was also Justice of the Peace and Trial 
Justice for that district. He taught school nearly every winter during his resi- 
dence in Illinois. 

During the tirst two or three years of the war he was captain of a military 
company known as the "Monee Guards," and during that time assisted in en- 
listing and drilling a good many men for the army, and in the summer of 1864 
was commissioned Captain by Governor Yates and opened a recruiting office in 
the city of Joliet. 

The Twentieth Regiment Illinois \'olunteer Infantry having been badly cut 
up, in fact, nearly annihilated, in one of the great battles of the war, he enlisted 
a great many men to fill up the ranks of that regiment, and finally was assigned 
to the command of Company ''A" of that regiment and went South with his 
company, joining Sherman's army and accompanying it on its great '' march to 
the sea." 

On the i6th of July, 1S65, when stationed somewhere in Kentucky, his com- 
pany was ordered to Chicago to be mustered out of service, and it was some time 
in August that he left the serWce and joined his family who, in the meantime, 
had returned to Maine. 

At this time it vras his intention to return to Illinois, but early in the fall of 
'65, a position v/as offered him as overseer of dyeing, and as his family preferred 
the East, he finally decided to take the position and remain in the East. From 
1865 to 1S70 he had charge of the dyeing for the Boston Duck Company, dye- 
house in Three Rivers, Mass. In 1870 he took a position as overseer of dyeing 
of the Columbian Manufacturing Company. Greeneville, X. H., and remained 
until the .spring of '74, when he returned to Three River? to take charge of the 
dyeing for a new mill which had recently been built by the Otis Company, and 
remained in the service of that company as superintendent of dyeing, until com- 
pelled to resign on account of ill health, in the summer of 1887, when he retired 
to a small farm in Wilbraham. Mass., and died there Oct. 11. 1888. 

Captain Milliken was naturally studious and always a great reader, and 
having an excellent memory, possessed a fund of information on a great many 
subjects which he knew well how to use in argument or debate. He was a man 
of strong convictions and was never afraid of being in the minority when he felt 
that he was in the rieht. 

Going to Illinois in the fall of 1855, he had not been in the State long enough 
to be entitled to vote for John C. Fremont, the first Republican candidate for the 
Presidency, at the presidential election of 1856. but from that time on he was an 
active worker in the ranks of the Republican party in both State and national 
affairs while he remained in Illinois, often presiding at the conventions of that 
party and speaking for its principles and candidates on the stump during its 


After taking up his residence in Massachusetts at the close of the war, he was 
always actively engaged in temperance work, and as the Republican party in 
that State, at that time, was about equally divided into two factions, one favoring 
the license of the liquor trade, and the other strongly opposing any such action, 
and favoring its prohibition by State laws, he was naturally in sympathy with, 
and did all that he possibly could for, the success of the temperance wing of the 
party. The license question was the principal issue in Massachusetts State poli- 
tics for a number of years, and as the State had a very large Republican majority, 
the contention was mainly within the ranks and between the factions of that 
party until a sort of a compromise was effected by the enactment of the local 
option law. 

This did not, by any means, settle the matter, but left it for each city and 
town to decide the question for itself at the polls each year. Captain ^Nlilliken 
was opposed to the local option law on the ground that it was wrong in principle, 
contending that if it was wrong to legalize the sale of liquor in any one city or 
town, as he believed it was, the State had no moral right to authorize its sale in 
any other city or town in the Commonwealth, though a majority of its citizens 
might be in favor of the license law. After a time the captain became conWnced 
that the Republican party, as such, would do no more in the interests of temper- 
ance, and that temperance men could serve the cause better by working with the 
so-called third party, and he allied himself with the Prohibition party and hence- 
forth v.'as one of its most active workers. 

Captain Milliken was converted and joined the Free Baptist Church in Saco, 
Me., when a young man. In 1S76 it was largely through his labors and influence 
and that of his family that the Union Evangelical Church at Three Rivers. Mass., 
was organized, with ^% members; the Captain and three other members of his 
family being among the number. During the first 25 years of the church's his- 
tory there were 423 members on its roll. 212 male and 211 female, and included 
in this membership were 53 persons that had come out from the Church of Rome. 

Captain Milliken taught a young men's Bible class in the Sunday-school of 
this church, and his influence with the young men of the church and community 
was remarkable and lasting. 

He was a man of considerable more than ordinary intelligence and ability, 
well read, an earnest, active Christian gentleman. 5s'ot ambitious to fill any 
high station in life, but ever content with his lot, he was always ready to help 
others, either by word or deed, and many there were who went to him for advice 
or more substantial help in times of trouble. 

He used to say that it was not so much the mission of the church to fit men to 
die as it was to fit them to live right lives; that everything possible should be 
done to make it harder for men to do wrong and easier for them to do right. 

He had a great deal of sympathy for drinking men who were trying to break 
away from their old habits, particularly old soldiers whom he knew had been 
subjected to trying temptations in their army life. He never tired of helping 
such men. although very often ever>- effort seemed to be in vain ; yet not all, for 
there are men living to-day who are living honest, sober lives who testify that 
their present condition in life is due in a large measure to Ihe kindly word of 
encouragement and helping hand of Captain Milliken. 

He had issue nine children, of whom with Sth generation. 
7- Aphia F. Milliken^ (\), third daughter of Amos^ (1), was b. in Freedom, 
N. H., Jan. 10, 1S25; was m. in 1850 to Johx Lowell, of Portland, Me., and 


went to California in 1864. ]Mr. Lowell d. Mar. 19, 1892, and his widow and 
four children are living at Alameda, Cal. 

8. Rev. Abraham H. Milliken' (1), fifth son of Amos' (1), was b. in Effingham, 
N. H., July 12, 182S, and at the age of twenty-five he m. Miss Rose Woodman, 
He went to Saco with his parents when four years of age, and in the mills there 
learned the dyer's trade, and became an efficient workman. Soon after marriage 
he removed to Lebanon, N. H.. where he had charge of the dyeing department in 
one of the mills until Lincoln's call for defenders of the nation's life, when he 
opened a recruiting office and enlisted a portion of the 12th New Hampshire 
Regiment, in which he was commissioned second lieutenant. At the battle of 
Chancellorsville he commanded his company and was promoted to first lieuten- 
ant for bravery, after being hit by four minie bullets and a fragment of a shell, 
the latter wounding him severely. He commanded his company at Fredericks- 
burg, and at Gettysburg, where he was one of the last to leave the field after the 
great Union victory. 

Returning from the war at its close, he engaged in business at Mechanic 
Falls, Me., but soon found that he could not silence the voice that had been call- 
ing him into the ''King's business" from the commencement of his Christian 
life. He was converted in Saco in the winter of 1S51-2, under labors of Rev. 
F. W. Straight, in the pastorate of Rev. S. Bathrick, who baptized him and re- 
ceived him into the Saco church. The older members of the church rem.ember 
him still with great tenderness and affection. His conviction was deep and pun- 
gent, and his conversion clear and thorough. But he held back from the min- 
istry until he became convinced that he must preach or lose his soul 1 

With the loss of all his earthly possessions came his final decision to enter 
upon a course of study for the ministry. He completed the t'nree years' course, 
and was graduated from the Cobb Divinity School in 1S73 ^^ the age of forty-five 
years. [His school hfe in Lewiston was passed during my pastorate in Auburn, 
and his church home was with us, so that I became intimately and happily ac- 
quainted with his experience as a Christian and as a student.] He was a diligent 
painstaking student, a conspicuously faithful and helpful Christian worker in the 
church, and a constant comfort to its pastor. He was also, for two years or 
more, secretary of the Auburn Y. M. C. A., where his consecrated service bore 
much precious fruit. 

He was ordained at Parker's Head, ^Me.. July 2, 1873, ^ev. W. H. Bowen, 
D.D., preaching the ordination sermon, and entered at once upon the pastorate 
of that church. His settlement there was almost immediately followed by a 
great revival of rehgion, which compassed, among other good things, the break- 
ing up of a dancing school in mid-term, and the conversion of seven sea captains 
with a score or more of others. 

From Parker's Head he v.ent to North Danville, Vt., in 1875, where a great 
revival doubled the church membership the first year of his pastorate. In a 
clear stream flowing near the house of worship he excavated with his own hands 
a beautiful out-of-door baptistery before the revival began, and God rewarded 
his faith by permitting him to lead into it for baptism nearly all the apparently 
convertible popuhtion of the place. 

West Derby, \'t.. called him from X. Danville, and kept him five years, in 
which the church passed through an experience little short of a resurrection from 
the dead, financially and spiritually. The Free Baptists, who had owned the 
house of worship in part only, came into full possession of it, made extensive 


repairs, ceased from dependence upon the home mission society, and the church 
became not only self-supporting, but regular contributors to all our benevolent 
societies, received large accessions of numbers, and grew into a strong, united 

His next two settlements were with the two churches at Bar !Mills (Buxton) 
and HoUis, Me., united in one pastorate, and the church at Xorth Lebanon, ]Me., 
in both of which he showed the same wise leadership, followed the same bioad 
plans for material growth, and exhibited the same skill and success in winning 
souls that he had manifested in other fields. The churches were revived and 
built up and many of the young were gathered in. 

Leaving N. Lebanon, he accepted his charge at Wolfborough with no little 
shrinking. But before its three years had closed he had received into the church 
fifty-two souls, and had seen it greatly strengthened along the lines of practical 
Christian activit}'. The young people were brought in in large numbers and 
gathered into one of the largest and most etlicient A. C. F. societies in the New 
Hampshire Yearly Meeting. 

Brother Milliken's last pastorate was at Kittery Point, ^Sle. After a com- 
paratively brief but successful work there, his rapidly faihng health compelled 
his resignation, and in May, iSg5. his active pastoral labor ended within two 
months of twenty-two years from its beginning. In the following summer he 
was alarmingly ill at Ocean Park, where he had gone for recuperation. By 
September he had so far rallied as to venture upon a visit to his son, residing in 
Nashua, X.H. But early in November he was stricken with paralvsis, resulting 
from spinal myelitis. In great suffering and with great patience and unwaver- 
ing faith he awaited his promotion in the home of his only surviving son, Edward 
B. ^lilliken, receiving with grateful appreciation the constant and tender care of 
his faithful companion, and his devoted son and wife, until Feb. 8, 1896, when 
he ceased from suffering and rose into rest. 

When near the end he was asked how it seemed ahead, he replied with a 
confident smile, "All light, bright, and beautiful. 'Jesus paid it all,' bless His 

A private funeral service was held in Nashua, conducted by Rev. C. S. Per- 
kins, pastor of the Nashua church, and the body rested there in a receiving tomb 
until summer, when it was removed, according to his own request, to West Derby, 
Vt.,and laid beside that of his son Woodman, whose death during his pastorate 
there was the great affliction of his life. 

He was a rare man, a whole-souled Christian, and a remarkably successful 

Intellectually he had sound common sense, candid and reliable judgment, 
excellent knowledge of human nature, and such substantial culture as rewards 
an earnest eft'ort to make the most of one's self for a holy calling. 

Spiritually his piety was deep, thorough-going, allper\-ading. He was in- 
capable of any compromise \yith the devil. In religion and in morals he e.xacted 
of himself all that he required of .others, and embodied his Christian profession 
in his daily life. His Christian sympathy was quick and strong and helpful, and 
his spirit of self-denial was Uke his Master's. He was mighty in prayer, and on 
his knees in public and private he was wont to bring heaven and earth in touch 
with each other. 

As a preacher he was conscientious and painstaking in the preparation of 
his sermons, giving them careful and prayerful study, and then delivering them 


with singular modesty and earnestness. He was not lluent as a speaker, but he 
was impressive. He got at the root of the matter in his text, and the evident sin- 
cerity of his utterances in the pulpit seldom failed to produce conviction. He 
preached each sermon with a deftnite puq:)ose inspired from on high. He didn't 
fire without taking aim. 

As a pastor of his flock he had very few equals. He knew the condition and 
needs of his people, and was untiring and successful in his efforts to do them 
good. His presence in the sick room was always a blessing, and his tender svm- 
pathy with those m any trial was always a comfort and a help. 

As a public teacher he was loyal to his God, to his conscience, and to the 
people of his choice. His denomination received much of his best thought and 
best effort in all the lines of its Christian work. He was evangelical in the best 
<?ense, and he taught only what he believed in his heart. 

As a citizen he took an active interest in public affahs, and held his own in- 
dependent opinions on all the political, social, and moral problems of the day 
with courage and good conscience. 

In his home he was all that was thoughtful and patient and kind; and their 
loss was most keenly felt who were nearest to him in the home relation. 

But after all is said of his individual characteristics as a man and a minister 
of Christ, and of their lasting influence upon all who knew him, it still remains 
true that he made his deepest and most permanent impression upon the common 
people, and upon the churches with which he labored, by the sterling qualitv of 
his genuine Christian character as a whole, and that in all his preaching his most 
practical and convincing sermon was his consistent and stainless public and 
private daily life. — From the Morning Star, by Rev. Fernald. 

Two children, of whom with 8th generation. 

9. Eliza Jane Milliken^ (1), fourth daughter of Amos° (1), was b. in Effingham-, 
N.H., Mar. 8, 1832; was m. Apr. 9, 1S56, to Fr.a.nk Scammax, of Saco, and had

IV. Henry Scamman, m. Flor.a M. Foss, and lives in Dorchester. Mass. 

V. Herbert C. Scamman, m. Maude C. Pritchard. 

10. Alma Milliken' (1), youngest son of Amos" (1), was b. in Saco, Me., Julv 16, 
1835, on the Andrew ^IcKenny farm, so-called; was m. Dec. 13, 185S, at the 
home of his wife's parents in Paw Paw, Mich., to Harriet Elizabeth Lee, the 
daughter of William and Susanna Lee, b. Aug. 13, 1837, in Washington, Erie 
Co., Pa. She is a descendant of the well-known Lee family of \'irginia, and of 
Revolutionar\' stock. Alma Milliken has had a somewhat eventful life. He 
early attended school at the Sawyer schoolhouse, on the Buxton road, and at 
Sandy Brook in Saco, supplementing this by a course of study at Westbrook 
Seminary. He entered the mills at Biddeford, learned the dyer's trade and 
worked as a journeyman and overseer in the mills at Saco, Biddeford, Lewiston 
(Me.), and Laconia. X. H. 

He enhsted in the 12th Xew Hampshire Regiment of Infantrv, Aug. 13, 1S62, 
and served three years, being in many hard-fought battles and skirmishes. At 
the battle of Chancellors ville he was seriously wounded by a minie ball uassino- 


through his left arm, and spent some months m a hospital in Washington, D.C. 
He joined his regiment at Point Lookout, ^Id. At the battle of Cold Harbor he 
was seriously injured in a charge on the enemy's works, and was sent again to 
Washington, where, after remaining for nine months, he was put into detached 
serNice, taking recruits to the front. 

After receiving an honorable discharge from the army, he joined his family 
in Michigan. He subsequently worked in a woollen mill; then engaged in the

Almon A. was made an overseer of the Lawrence Corporation in Lowell, 
!Mass., in the early eighties, and held that position for several years, then taking 
a similar one in the mills at Jewett City, Conn. ; from there he went to Norwich 
and had charge of a department of the Fails Company's Mills and was appointed

a position as travelling salesman for a drug and dye firm and was on the road for 
several years; in the meantime, visiting Europe in the interests of his company 
and remaining there for about a year. In 1SS6 he accepted a position as over- 
seer of dyeing of the Thorndike Co., at Thorndike, and remained there until 
after his father's death, when he was appointed dyer at the Palmer Mill, at Three 
Rivers, to succeed his father. From there he went to Lawrence as overseer of 
dyeing on the Everett, and after remaining there about two years was appointed 
superintendent of the Pemberton Co., serving about two years in that capacit}^

Note. — The sons of David Miiliken, James I. and Roscoe S.. were bom in Saco, and 
Almon A. in Lewiston, Me. They went -vN-ith their parents to Illinois when they were little 
boys, and of course attended the public schools there, and, returning to New England in 
1865, went to school in both Maine and Massachusetts, also attending Monson Academy at 
Monson, Mass., and the two younger, .\lmon and Roscoe, also going to Limerick Academy, 
Limerick, Me., for a time. .After leaving school, they went to work in the mill, spending con- 
siderable time in the various departments with a view of learning something of cotton man- 
xifacturing. They are business men, and have been reasonably successful in whatever they 
have undertaken, and have the respect of the community in which they live.

Edward Milliken^ (1), eighth son of John^ (1), and Elizabeth Alger, was baptized 
at the Brattle Street church, Boston, Mass., July 6, 1706, and settled in Scar- 
borough (District of Maine), on the Dunstan lands, in 1729. He m. Abigail 
NoRMAX.* Was admitted to the First Church in Scarborough, Oct. 31, 1736. 
He was widely known by the title "Justice ^Nlilliken," having been appointed a 
judge of the Inferior Court in 1760, and was continued in that office until 1771. 
His reputation was that of sound judgment and sterling integrity; a prudent 
counsellor and useful. pubUc-spirited townsman. He was a grantee of Trenton, 
on Union River, when so many of his townsmen removed to that section of the 
now State of Maine. His name appears on a petition to His Excellency, Francis 
Benard, of date Jan. 3. 1762, in which it was stated as follows: "'We the sub- 
scribers, having been soldiers at Fort Pownall, and now settled at a place called 
Magebaggadeuce on the eastern side of Penobscot Bay," etc. He acted a prom- 
inent part in the settlement of Trenton, and was appointed by the General Court 
to receive the bonds of the grantees. He was moderator of a meeting held bv 
the proprietors of the townships on Union River, Aug. i, 1764, at the tavern of 
Capt. Sam. Skillings. in Falmouth. We ha\e not found a record of his death, 
nor that of his wife. These had a family of fourteen children, as will presently 
appear, and their posterity is very numerous, far exceeding in numbers the other 
branches of the Scarborough family.

1. Benjamin Milliken' (1), eldest son of Edward^ (1), was baptized at the Brat- 
tle Street church in Boston. Mass., Feb. i, 1727, and d. in childhood. 

2. Benjamin Milliker/ {2), second son of Edward^ (1), was b. Aug. 5, 172S, in 
Boston, and baptized May 20, 1729, in Scarbro. He was three times married; 
first, Nov. 17, 1746, to Sarah Smith of Scarbro, Me.; second. Sept. 9, 1754, to 
ELLZ.A.BETH Banks, daughter of Moses Banks of York. Me.; third, Dec. 3, 1766, 
to Phebe Jordax. daughter of Dominicus Jordan of Biddeford. She survived 
her husband, and was at Cape Elizabeth whh her relati\e?. Sept. 17, 1792. By 
these wives he had no less than eighteen children; four by Surah, five by Eliza- 
beth, and nine by Phebe. 

He began his somewhat remarkable business career in his native town of Scar- 
borough, where he owned a large gambrel-roofed house, and had a store in which 

* Abigail Norm.\x was probably a granddaughter of John Muibt-rrv" of Boston. The 
records show that John and .\bi^ail NTulbcrry had children as follows. John, b. 167^; Abi-

b. i6<;5. 

Abigail Norman Mi.'iiken had a son named John Mulberry, a son Benjamin, and a 
daughter -Jiaan^a.- names in this Mulberry f.iirily. MoSKS \okma.v was an innkeeper in 
Boston, 1727. Ann Xorman continued the business there in 1728. Richard Xokman was 
at Marblfhcad, 167Q ^nd 1681. John Norman, son of Richard and Abigail (Roper) Nor- 
man, died in 1713, aged 76. 


he traded, on the Dunstan Landing road. He was an owner of lands in Rowley- 
Canada (now near Nashua, X.H.), which had been {!;ranted to soldiers, or heirs 
of soldiers, who had served in the Canada expedition of 1696; but when the 
boundary line between Massachusetts and New Hampshire was run out and 
established, these lands were found to have been in the latter province, and he, 
with other petitioners, was granted, in 1761, a township seven miles square, east 
of the Saco River, in lieu of that of which they had been dispossessed. He was 
one of three who proceeded to lay out the township named '* Pondicherry," now 
Bridgton, Me., and on presenting a plan of the same to the General Court they 
obtained conhrmation of said grant, June 25, 1765. Finding the timber on 
these lands too remote from a market, Benjamin Milliken sold out his share and 
invested in lands adjoining other lands owned by him on Union River, and made 
that locality the seat of his lumbering business. He had lost his lands and other 
property in Scarborough by foreclosure of a mortgage held by \\'heelwright & 
Althrope of New York, and in 1764 made Trenton his headquarters. He was 
granted a mill privilege there with timber lands adjoining, and with his wife and 
daughter and thirty men went do"\\'n in a vessel owned by Ephraim Dyer, and 
built a saw-mill on a small stream that empties into Union River. The condi- 
tion of his grant required him to have his mill fit for service within six months 
from the date, Aug. i, 1764, and as it was raised between Sept. 2 and Oct. 12 of 
that year, he evidently fulfilled his contract. 

In his deposition, given in 1796, Ephraim Dyer testified that he carried down 
about four hundred pounds' worth of provisions and other stores; that he re- 
mained and helped the Millikens near a fortnight, during which time the men 
made use of his vessel to live in until they had built a house. This "house" was 
but a rude camp built against a huge bowlder named by an early surveyor the 
"Punch Bowl; " and a daughter of Benjamin MilHken, then only fourteen years 
of age, afterwards Mrs. Lord, cooked the first meal ever prepared by a white 
woman in the township. 

As there were thirty-t^'O workmen employed on the mill, a large quantity of 
food must have been consumed; and as Ephraim Dyer said two women went 
down from Scarborough in the vessel with the builders, it has been assumed that 
one of them was the mother of the maid who first put the kettle on: but the rec- 
ords prove that this was not the fact, for her father married Elizabeth Banks in 
1754, only ten years before the mill was built, and would not have had a daughter 
by her fourteen years of age at that time. Abigail Milhken, daughter of Sarah 
Smith, Benjamin's first wife, was b. in 1750, and was just fourteen v.hen the mill 
was erected, and if the statements and dates are correctly given, — and there are 
excellent authorities to verify them, — this daughter was the first to prepare food 
in Trenton, now Ellsworth. 

This first saw-mill built by the Millikens — for Thomas of Boston was part 
owner — was unwisely situated, proved almost a failure, was called the " Folly 
Mill," and was soon abandoned. Afterwards they built a double saw-mill on 
another water power, and there the Milhkens carried on their lumber business 
successfully many years. They ov.ned vessels, and shipped much of the manu- 
factured lumber to Connecticut and sold it. 

As Benjamin Milliken had expressed Tory sentiments, and as feeling was 
running high when the Revolutionary War broke out, fearing for his own and the 
safety of his family, he was persuaded by his friends to join the British at Castine. 
He subsequently removed to New Brunswick, and on Aug. 12, 1784, with about 


one hundred others, known as the '' Penobscot Association Loyalists," received 
two grants of land from the government. Their town grant comprised the town 
plot of St. Andrew's, the now famous summer resort; and their farm lots under 
separate grants included several tracts extending from Bocabec westerly along 
the coast to St. Stephen, with an additional tract on the St. Croix River above 
what is now Milltown. 

His son, Benjamin Milliken Jr., received a lot in the same grant; the numbers 
of these lots were, respectively, 129 and 131, fronting on the St. Croix River, 
about one mile east of the present town of St. Stephen. Shortly after these lands 
were granted he left St. Andrew's and went to a place ten miles westward, on the 
shore of St. Andrew's Bay, called Bocabec. Here he built a house, the cellar of 
which is still visible, and a shipyard, where he built vessels, the remains of which 
may now be seen. Here he passed the remainder of his eventful life, and here 
his grave is pointed out in a lot where some members of his family were buried. 

\\"hen we contemplate the history of this man we are moved to feelings of 
pit>-, for the unconquerable courage and unfaltering spirit of enterprise displayed 
by him in the vicissitudes he experienced were worthy of greater success than he 
achieved. He must have been a person possessed of great will-force and exhaust- 
less resources, for, undismayed, he grappled with formidable obstacles which he 
either outflanked or overcame. He was invested with an ample supply of that 
kind of stuff, of which, under proper opportunities, great generals are made; and 
had he espoused the cause of the colonists as warmly as did some of his kindred, 
he would have won his epaulets in our struggle for independence. But he was 
not, unfortunately for him, on the winning side. His estates in Maine were con- 
fiscated, and he was, evidently, comparatively poor when, in the British Dominion, 
he began the "struggle for existence'' the third time. He was a pioneer of old 
Scarborough, a pioneer on Union River and the founder of Ellsworth, and a 
pioneer adventurer of St. Andrew's. 

Many misleading statements concerning this lion-hearted man and his chil- 
dren have been circulated, and family tradition was far astray; but we have de- 
rived our data i)rincipally from authentic sources and from an intelligent member 
of the Milliken family living in New Brunswick who has visited the neighbor- 
hood of his last earthly home, his grave, and copied from his old Bible the rec- 
ords of his family; hence we are enabled to present in connected form the salient 
features in the history of one about whose motives and conduct there has been 
much speculation. He has been called ''RoyaHst Ben," "Tory Ben," and 
"Runav.-ay Ben;" but on good authority we are ready to assume that Benjamin 
Milliken was a man of noble impulses and superior moral character, who was 
impelled to make the sacrihces he did from what was. to him, principle, and his 
expatriation showed him to have been a loyal Royalist. The names of his chil- 
dren will appear with the 5th generation. 

3. Joseph Milliken'* (1), third son of Edward' (1), and Abigail Norman, baptized 
in Scarbro, May 29, 1723; m. May 17, 1750, to Sarah Foster, daughter of Ben- 
jamin Foster of said town, and a sister of Col. Ben. Foster of ^Machias, Ale. He 
was a grantee of Trenton on Union River in 1763. By his first wife he had five 
children; and by his second, whose maiden name was Berry, he had nine chil- 
dren, of whom with 5th generation. 

4- Abigail IVlilliken'' (1), eldest daughter of Edward^ (1), b. May 29, 1731; was

May 10, 1734. He probably d. in childhood, as I tind no more mention. 

6. Daniel Milliken^ (1). fifth son of Edward^ (1), was baptized in Scarbro, Mar. 
10, 1734. No other information. 

7. Edward Milliken* (2), sixth son of Edward^ (l).was b. in Scarbro, Mar. 5, 
1733-4. He m. May 23, 1754, to Elizabeth Harmox in the same town. He 
was a grantee of Trenton, Me., in 1763. He lived on the homestead farm in his 
native town, where he remained until about 1S05, when he removed to Buxton 
and lived with his son Nathaniel until his death, about 1S12. He was buried in 
an old grave\"ard on the fence line which now divides the farms of Henry Hill 
and Henry Hews. He was called "Skipper Ned," and was, I suppose, in early 
life, a seaman. His family consisted of eleven children, of whom with 5th gen- 

8. Susanna Milliken^ (1), second daughter of Edward^ (1), wash, in Scarbro, 
Sept. 30, 1736; was m. July 3, 1752, to Samuel Boothby of the same town, ancl 
had children named as follows: 

I. John Boothby, b. Feb. 21, 1753; m. Nov. 24, 1773, to Elizabeth Mil- 
liken of Scarbro, who d. Nov. 27, 1S33, the mother of eight children, one 
of whom was Rev. John Boothby of Saco.

■9. John Mtilbery Milliken* (1), seventh son of Edward^ (1), b. in Scarbro, June 
7, 1739; m. Sarah Simonton, and lived in his native town. He was known as 
■"Mulbery Milliken," being named, we assume, for some of the Boston Mul- 
berys,* who were connected with the Norman and Milliken families. Capt. 
Mulbery ^Milliken had command of a vessel in 1774. He carried a cargo of lum- 
ber to Salem for Mr. King, and on his own responsibility took out a license from 
some authority there and carried the lumber to Boston, it being wanted there to 
build barracks for the British troops, and sold it at a good price. He was the 
father of a large family, of whom more with 5th generation. 
10. Rebecca F^illiken^ (1), third daughter of Edward'* (1), b. in Scarbro, Nov. 
14, 1741; was m. to George Coolbroth, 1762, with whom she eloped on snow- 
shoes, climbing from her bedroom window, and was disinherited by her father 
for so doing. She lived to be more than one hundred years of age, and often re- 
lated her. romantic adventures to her grandchildren, advising them nol to do as 
she had done. She was the mother of twelve children, and her descendants are 
very numerous.

12. Lemuel Milliken* (1), eighth son of Edward' (1), wash, in Scarbro. in 1745; 
m. Jan. 18, 1770, to Phebe Lord, and had no less than eight children bom to him. 
I do not know his place of residence; it was in Scarborough. 

13. Samuel Milliken* (1), ninth son of Edward' (1), wash, in Scarbro, Feb. 14, 
1746; m. Susanna Beats in that to\Mi, Oct. 31, 1769. She was b. in the fort 
between York and Kittery, Sept. 14, 1751, and d. at Mt. Desert, ]\Ie., Jan. 18, 
1852. He d. there July 26, 1841. His name appears as a grantee on Union 
River, where he settled about 1765; he removed to Pretty Marsh in 17S3. He 
was a pioneer on Mt. Desert Island, and was known and honored bv all who 
knew him. Bold to speak the truth, he is said to have offended evil-doers; but 
even his enemies, if such he had, respected him for his staunch manhood. He 
and his estimable companion were of the old-fashioned stamp, somewhat quaint 
in appearance on public occasions, but by all respectable persons they were treated 
with deference and pohteness. This world would be much better with more of 
this kind of inhabitants. By this union there were twelve children, of whom with 
5th generation. 

14- Jeremiah Milliken* (1), tenth son of Edward' (1), was b. in Scarbro, Nov. 
6, 1751; m. to Sarah Lord of that town June 3, 1771, and lived near his birth- 
place. It has been written that this Jeremiah Milliken settled on Union River, 
in Eastern Maine; but the births of his children, of whom with 5th feneration 
were recorded in Scarbro. 

/iftb 6fucrution. 


1. Mary Milliken' fl), eldest daughter of Benjamin* (2), b. in Scarbro, Sept. 17, 
1748; was m. to her cousin John Smith of Scarbro. 

2. 'Abigail MiHiken"^ (2), second daughter of Benjamin* (2). b. in Scarbro, Sept. 
29, 1750; was m. to Capt. Isaac Lord, and lived on Union River. She was fond 
of telling her children and others, that she was the first white woman to cook a 
meal in Ellsworth, of v/hich ht!r father was the founder. She was wont to say 
that the back of her fireplace was a " punch-bowl," meaning the great bowlder so- 
calied, against which the fire was built. She d. in Surry, Me., May 10, 1838, aged 


88. There have been severil Xorman Lords in Eastern Maine, who were prob- 
ably her descendants. Thus the name of the Xorman family was perpetuated. 

3. Susanna Milliken^ (2), third daughter of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro, 
July 10, 1752. 

4. Benjamin Milliken" (3), eldest son of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro, May 
15, 1754, and d. young. 

5. Sarah Milliken* (1), fourth daughter of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro, Jan. 
24, 1756; was m. to Capt. Zach.ajry Tarbox of the Biddeford family, and sur- 
vived but one year after her marriage, dying in Ellsworth, Me. Her daughter 
left a manuscript history of that town, now possessed by Airs. E. C, Milliken of 
Boston, from which some data was copied. 

6. Joseph Milliken^ (2), second son of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro, Nov. 

10, 1758; m. , and settled in Surry, Me.; but as the early records of that 

tow^n were destroyed by fire, the births of his numerous family of children could 
not be found. There was, however, an old Bible containing such record, and it 
may still be in the possession of his descendants. Advertising in the "Ameri- 
can " of Ellsworth, and diligent search by correspondence, have proved unsuc- 
cessful. Miss Jellison, in her History of Ellsworth, says he married and had "an 
obscure family" in the neighborhood of that town; but we fail to see the appro- 
priateness of her statement, for he had a quiver well filled with sons, whose pos- 
terity, now scattered from their cradle-town to the Pacific slope, are of intelligence 
and good character. His sons were named John, Benjamin, Daniel, Jesse, and 
Dominicus, of whom more with 6th generation. 

7. Elizabeth Milliken'' (1), fifth daughter of Benjamin* (4), was b. in Scarbro, 
Dec. 10, 1760, and was the second wife of Capt. Zach.ary Tarbox, who was 
lost at sea, leaving her with three small children. 

8. Benjamin Milliken^ (4), thurd son of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro (?), 
Jan. 9, 1763; m. Lucy B.a_n"ks, and settled at the mouth of the river below Ells- 
worth. Miss Jellison, in her manuscript history, says his father left two children 
by his second wife at Ellsworth, one of whom was this Benjamin; but he prob- 
ably went to the Pro\ince of New Brunswick, for I find record of a grant of land 
to him, of equal date of his father's grant, at St. George, N.B. I have no reason 
to think that he settled there. The old Bible containing his family record — if 
such there was — has been lost sight of; and as the early town registers of Ells- 
worth were destroyed, we cannot find the dates of births, marriages, and deaths. 
He had six sons and five daughters, of whom with 6th generation. 

9. Elias Milliken' (1), fourth son of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro (?), Aug. 
24, 1765; was m. to Mary Patten, of Scotch-Irish extraction, in 1786, when in 
Maine. She d. May 19, 1S35. He m. 2d, a Mrs. Dun'ham, by whom no issue. 
His death occurred June 22, 1846, at the age of 81 years. His early manhood 
was spent in Stetson, Penobscot Co., Me., where he continued his residence 
until 1817, when he removed to Ohio, and thence to Dearborn Co., Ind. He 
was a man of unwearied energy and industry, who braved many dangers and 
passed through many trying ex-periences in pior^er days in the West. As the 
mediums of communication were inadequate between the East and West at that 
early day, Elias and his family became isolated from their kindred, and for 
many years were lost sight of, and only vague,family traditions existed to guide 


the compiler of this genealogy in his search for his posterity. After much ad- 
vertising through the Western newspapers and an extensive correspondence, the 
family were found, and the records assembled as herein produced. These ^Slilli- 
kens have developed characteristics conspicuous in the Eastern brandies, and 
have held the confidence and esteem of their fellow-citizens. Ehas and Mary 
had thirteen children, of whom with 6th generation. 

lo. Phebe Milliken* (1), fifth daughter of Benjamin^ (2), b. Aug. 30, 1767; was 
m. to Capt. Robert Varden, an Englishman, and went with him to his native 
land, where a daughter was born and christened. They returned to New Bruns- 
wick, however, and settled near her father, at Bocabec, where the old \'arden 
mansion stands to-day. The location is known as \'arden's Point. Here they 
d. and were buried. A somewhat romantic story is told about this Phebe MiUi- 
ken. Her husband was an ofiicer in the British na\y during the Revolution, and 
whUe at Castine became enamored of this daughter of Benjamin Milhken, 
then living in her father's family there. At one time he went on shore to visit 
her, leaving his vessel in care of a subordinate, and for neglect of dutv was 
cashiered and lost his commission. But he proved loyal to his lady-love, and in 
due time became her husband. 

Miss JeUison, in her manuscript history of Ellsworth, calls ^Slrs. Varden 
Eupheynia, but that name is not in the family record found in Benjamin Milli- 
ken's Bible. Others have said Capt. Varden m. Rachel ^liUiken, but she was 
not b. until May 15, 1775. 

Phebe Milliken \'arden had eleven children, named as follows: 

I. Harriet Childs Varden, b. in London, Eng., Aug. 17, 1784; was m 
to John Baldwin of St. George, X. B. She was named for an aunt 
Harriet Childs, who, tradition saith, remarked at the time, "Name 
the child for me, and she shall be my heiress." "The money," con 
tinues tradition, "was left for this godchild, but she did not receive it.' 
She was the mother of three sons and one daughter.

known as Brunswick HiU after the settlement there of the Vardens.

Dr. THOi[AS \\'VRE Varden, of Gait, Ont., has an old morocco wallet that

Varden. At The Doublet. Thames Street. 1754." This was in London. 

Robert Varden, son of Robert, who was a son of Capt. Robert \'arden, 
has in his possession a coat-of-arms that was borne by his ancestors, described 
as follows: "The Warden crest is a falcon holding a serpent in its beak." 
This family was of French origin. 

11. Dorcas Milliken" (1), sixth daughter of Benjamin* (2), wash, on Union

carried on his business at St. Andrew's, X. B. When she was dying, and many 
of her family were standing around her bed, she asked them all" to read the 
37th Psalm and the 8th chapter of Romans. These had seven children, named

sister of the late Joseph Walton of St. Andrew's, and lived at Bocabec, a locality 
to which he had gone with his father when a lad. He left the British Province, 
however, in 1S03, and for about two years resided in Pennsylvania; probablv in 
Philadelphia. Returning to Bocabec in 1S05. he removed to Little York, now 
Toronto, in Upper Can., and was there engaged in milling. He had charge of 
the first lumber-mills operated in the township of Markham. then known as the 
" German Mills." He afterward purchased a share \x\ a mill at Markham vil- 
lage (then called Reeseville for local families of that name), but soon exchanged 
this property for land designated "Lot number i in Concessional number 5," in 
the county of York and tov.-nship of Markham, containing two hundred acres.

To your patriarchal feast 
In our countn-'s farthest East, 
I, a stranger, not a guest, 
Greeting send from farthest West. 

Somewhere, in some far-o£F line, 
Blood of yours was blood of mine; 
So they say. It matters not; 
Since were we of alien race 
Strange of color, tongue and face, 
Kalmac, Tartar, Hottentot, 
Mongol, Afric, Indian — 
Trace the races he who can — 
Wliite, or black, or red, or bro^Ti, 
Safe it is to wTite it down, 
At the one g^reat Father's knee. 
Common children, all, are we. 

So, my Kinsman, health and peace! 
Can I say, "Your years increase," 
When the full threescore and ten 
Meted unto common men — 
Limit of the toil and strife. 
The strange mysterv' called Life — 
Long your steps have overpast ? 
Strange it is our thoughts to cast 
Down a centur\-'s long track 
In one lifetime looking back! 

Why! when you first saw the light, 

Scarcely how to wear arisht 

Her young freedom — strange and new 

As this world of ours to you — 

Did our maiden nation know. 

You have seen her empire grow, 
Rise of sun to set of sun, 
Lands of fire and lands of snow, 
Gathered, blended, one by one. 
As the light of stars is blent 
In one glorious firmament; — 
Till our timid Princess towers 
Queen above her sister powers. 


You have seen her fair head bowed 
Thrice beneath a bloody cloud; 
Thrice triumphant, wear the crown 
Of a danger battled down; 
Thrice her hands the sword release 
For the lily-blooms of peace. 

Stranger yet — fulfilment bold 

Of that wild, weird \ision, told 

By a wizard, burned of old 

For his magic, — name it we 

Rather his true prophecy, — 

You have known; upon the sea 

Sailless, oarkss, ships to row; 

Carriage without horse to go; 

Man in air to move like bird; 

Air to burn; and uttered word 

At a thousand miles be heard; 

Round the whole great globe a belt 

Like a living pulse be felt; 

Even the sun, — and this is worse, — 

Monarch of our Universe, — 

Forced with artist's touch to trace 

Portraits of our mortal race 

Is the age of miracles 

At an end, indeed, when sdll, 

Day by day, and hour by hour, 

Is unfolded some new power, 

New, and yet as old as Time, 

Waiting for the touch sublime, 

Waiting but the master mind 

To reveal it to mankind ? 

Surely God is with the earth, 

Now, as at her hour of birth; 

Still he walks her gardens v\-ide 

Morning-time and evening-tide; 

Clearly still His mighty word 

By the listening ear is heard. 

Man of years and silver hair, 
Great the honor which you bear 
In the "added length of days" 
He has given. Give Him praise! 

May that vast mysterious Will 
Grant thee added blessings still 
Every- hour that yet is thine 
Link xvith mortal' the divine. 
Till thy hundred years shall be 
Merged into eternity!

the owner, who had offended him, to step over it if he dared, but prudence saved

and finding a favorable opportunity to dispose of his farm, he did so, and settled 
in Davis Co., la., in iS6i. .\l\vays a warm patriotic citizen, he chafed under the

NOTE. — The James Lord homestead is located in the extreme northwestern section of 
Saco; in fact, a part of it lies in Buxton. It is reached by taking a cross highway which in- 
tersects the farm, leading west from the Buxton road to Union Falls on the Saco River. The 
old buildings, neglected and dcs.jrted, sad emblem of long-departed days, stand alone, there 
being no other habitation on the road from the point where it leaves the Buxton road, to the 
four corners where stands the Union schoolhouse in Buxton, a distance of nearly two miles.

May 25, 1844; m. Nov. 25, 1880, to Austina Hopkinson Cleaves, b. Dec. 18,

Mass., and d. in Biddeford, Me., Sept. 3, 1896. Went with his parents to Saco 
when but a lad, and attended the public schools there. He followed the sea as 
cabin boy in the West India trade during his minority, and was for some time 
employed in the saw-milhng business. Then he worked in a Saco grocery 
store; afterwards conducted a livery stable. In Oct., 1861, he enlisted in Co. 
E of the 10th Maine Regiment, as a private, and shared in the active service of 


that command. After a term of nineteen months' service, he came home a cor- 
poral. He afterward drove stage between Saco and Portland; subsequently 
engaged in the trucking and express business for several years, and during this 
period he sustained the fracture of both legs by the kick of a vicious horse. He 
finally purchased the "Andrews ^Music Store," and continued in the piano 
business successfully the remainder of his life. 

He was a man of strict temperance, and was identified always with everv 
honest movement for the enforcement of the liquor laws and the maintenance of 
good order. He was a prominent and useful member of the Universalist Society, 
and was for years one of its trustees; was constant in attendance upon the church 
services and sabbath school. He was a member of the Grand .\rmy; belonged

I. Hon. Benjamin Milliken^ (11), eldest son of Frederick^ (2), and Melvina, 
b. in Appling Co., Ga., Dec. 13, 1S42, was m. June 24, iS68,>by Richard Ben- 
nett to Martha Hofps, b. May 19, 1850. Fifteen children, of whom with Sth 
generation. .\t the age of ten years young Milliken was following the plough. 
He was constitutionally fond of useful knowledge and an apt scholar. Every 
spare moment was occupied in study. He read all of the books and newspapers 
he could lay hanrls on, and often by the dim light of pitch knots at night. Be- 
fore he was twche years of age he had taught two schools. Before he v.-as eigh- 
teen he entered the Confederate Army, being one of the "Appling Grays," the 
first company raised in .Appling County, Fie was at the battles of Yorktown, \\'il- 
liamsburg, and Seven Pines, and was one who waded the Potomac when the 
Confederate .Army entered Maryland in 1862. He was also in the battles of 
Boonesborough, Sept. 14, 1862, and Sharpsburg, Sept. 17, 1S62. In this battle, 


The early life of Mr. Milliken was spent in Saco where the limited op- 
portunity of an education was well improved. At the age of fifteen he ac- 
cepted a position as clerk in a dry goi:)ds store in Saco. with B. F. Hamil- 
ton, remaining three years, thus gaining a knowledge of the mercantile busi- 
ness which determined his career in life. 

Ambitious to see the \\'est, when only eighteen years of age he accepted 
a position in Traverse City. Mich., with Hannah, Luy & Co., with whom 
he remained nearly six years, his services being efhcient and greatly ap- 
preciated by his employers. 

When not twenty-five years of age he decided to embark in business for 
himself and, today, is proprietor of one of the largest, most reliable and 
firmly established dry good stores in his section of the state. He is also 
secretary and treasurer and a large stockholder in the Potato Implement 
Company, a manufacturing concern engaged in the construction of all 
kinds of farming implements used in the planting, cultivating, digging and 
crating of potatoes. 

Politically, Mr. Milliken is an uncompromising Rebublican. For a 
number of years he was president of the Business Man's Association. He 
has served on the City Council, and was for several years chairman of the 
County Central Committee. In 1S97 he was elected to fill a vacancy, and 
in 1898 he received the nomination for state senator, being elected by a 
large plurality. He completed a successful term, and although amply quali- 
fied and splendidly equipped, wishing to attend to business and home duties, 
he could not be induced to accept another political office. 

Mr. Milliken has always taken a most active interest in the develop- 
ment of the city where he resides. Fair-minded and conscientious, his 
word is always as good as his gold. He can be trusted at all times and in 
all places to do the right. He is esteemed all over the state and numbered 
among her best citizens. Charitable to the e.xtreme, many are the times he 
has reached a helping hand, unknown to others than himself; this is his 
way of giving. 

He is a regular attendant and a member of the Congregational church. 
For years he has been superintendent of the Sabbath-school comprising a 
tnembership of nearly seven hundred ; and is now the president of the state 
Sunday-school Association, and has been either vice president or member of 
the executive committee for a number of years. He is also a member of the 
Board of Directors of (Jlivet College. 

A devoted husband and father he is unusally happy in his home-life, and 
stands before the world a true type of the intellectual, courteous Christian 

One son, Jajiu-s Thacktr Milliken, is now a student at Olivet College, 
Mich., and is a young man of marked ability, giving promise of a bright 
future. See portrait of Mr. Milliken in this book.

called by the Federals "Antietam," he was taken prisoner, and being severely 
wounded was soon discharged. For more than a year he was on crutches, and 
the etiects of his wound are seen in his gait to-day. As soon as he could walk 
with a cane he organized a company over which he was elected captain, and 
again entered the Confederate Army in 1S64. He was among those taken prison- 
ers by Sherman at Savannah, and was confined in the Old Capitol Prison in 
Washington. Thence he was removed to Fort Delaware, where he was confined 
until June 19, 1S65, after the war had closed. While in prison he was urged 
by his Northern relatives to take the oath of allegiance and gain his freedom, 
but he stubbornly refused. After his army service closed he returned to his 
agricultural pursuits in Apphng County, and was successful. He owns exten- 
sive tracts of land in Appling and Wayne Counties, and carries on farming on 
an extensive scale. In 1SS3 he engaged in merchandising in Jesup, Wayne 
County, but soon sold out and returned to his farm. He is one of the directors 
of the State Experiment Farm from the Eleventh Congressional District, and has 
been a Hfe member of the State Agricultural Society for fourteen years. 

He was one of the five justices of the Inferior Court of Appling County, and 
served until the courts were abohshcd in the State of Georgia, and Boards of 
County Commissioners established in lieu of them. He was a member of the 
first Board of County Commissioners for Appling County. Also county school 
commissioner. Was chaurman of the Democratic Executive Committee of his 
county, and subsequently held the same position in Wayne County. Was a 
member of the Populist Executive Committee of Wayne County, and member 
of the Populist State Executive Committee from the Eleventh Congressional 
District. Also delegate to several congressional and gubernatorial conventions 
in the Democratic and Populist parties. Received the unanimous nomination 
for Congress, and ran, in 1S96, on Popjulist ticket. Was nominated and made a 
race on State ticket for Comptroller-General in 1S9S, on Populist ticket. Town 
Treasurer for Jesup, Ga., in 1899. Member and President of Boards of Educa- 
tion in Apphng County, and same, later, in Wayne County, ^\'as first Presi- 
dent of the Board of Education of pubhc school .s\stcm of Jesup, Ga., and mem- 
ber of the Board of Aldermen of the same tov.-n. 

He would alwavs keep a school going in his community, and often employed 
the teachers, and took chances of getting their pay from patrons. He established 
a school for girls in Jesup, known as "The Milliken Girls' School," which was 
a success. 

F'ormerly a Democrat, as were his father and grandfather, in 1S94 he became 
a Populist, both as an individual and as proprietor and editor of the I esnp 
Sentinel. His abihty as a writer is of the first order, and his editorials are clear 
and caustic. As a business man he has few equals. Strong politically, he is 
considered to be a rising hght who will yet sucr ced to a higher station as a rep- 
resentative of his fellow-citizens. As a man he holds the respect of his com- 
munity. Few men have been more succc-.-sful where pure grit and industry 
were the essential factors to be considered than <"a[;tain Milliken.

lives. His next engagement, fought at Pegram Farm, near Petersburg, Sept. 
30th, was followed by the battle at Hatcher's Run, and the South Side Railroad 
combats. After that he was engaged in garrison duty at Fort Welch and Fort 
Da^^s, the latter being near to the famous Fort Hell in front of Petersburg. On 
Dec. 12, 1864. his regiment was united with the 31st Maine, both having been 
badly depleted, and was subsequently known by that designation. On Apr. 2, 
1865', he participated in the hnal capture of Petersburg, passing through in 
pursuit of General Lee. On arriving at Nottoway Courthouse, his regiment, 
with two others of the brigade, was detailed as a guard escort to Sutherland 
Station for Generals Ewclfand De Hoc, and other rebel ofticers, besides eight 
thousand troops, all of whom General Sheridan had captured a few days previ- 
ously. After this service the regiment made a forced march to Berksville Junc- 
tion, and was present at the surrender of General Lee. He soon after returned 
with the regiment to City Point, and thence went by steamer to Alexandria, and 
participated in the Grand Review at Washington. He received an honorable 
discharge July 15, 1S65, after seventeen months of service, much of wliich was

(Lbirt) 6cncnition. 

Nathaniel Milliken^ (1). son of John- (1), and wife Eh'zabeth Aljrcr, was bap- 
tized in Brattle Street Church, Boston, ]Mass, Apr. 24, 170Q, and settled in 
Scarbro, Me., at Dunston, so-called, in 1730. He m. Aus;. 5, 1731, Sarah 
MuNSOX. He was a tailor by trade, ha\-ing served his apprenticeship in Boston,, 
and his grandchildren remember ha\-ing seen his large "cutting-table"' and 
heavy, wrought-iron "goose." He was a deacon of the Second Parish Church 
of Scarbro and was locally known as "Deacon Nathaniel." His second 
wife was Anna Small, widow of Josiah Libby, known as "Trumpeter 'Siah," 
to whom he was m. Jan. 10, 1755, and by whom he had issue. She d. Jan. 12. 
1784. His house was situated between "the crossways." Date of his death 
not known. Deacon Milliken was a man of deep and sincere pietv; moderate, 
calai, prudent and of grave deportment; a good townsman and true friend. 
There were thirteen children, by two wives, of whom with 4th generation. 

J'ourtlj 6cncr:iiioit. 


1. Jonathan Milliken* (1), eldest son of Xathaniel" (1), b. in Scarbro, Me., 
June 10, 1733; m. Esther Harmon, Mar. 29, 1753, and settled on the farm in 
Scarbro where Tra Milliken subsequently hved. I think Jonathan was identi- 
fied with the Union River settlement but have no evidence of his moving his 
family there. He* had issue thirteen children, of whom with the 5th generation. 

2. Nathaniel Milliken* (2\ second son of Nathaniel^ (1), b. in Scarbro, Me.^ 
Feb. 1 8, 1734; d. a child. 

3. Josiah Milliken* (1), third son -^ XathanieP (1), b. in Scarbro, Me., Oct. 27, 
1736; m. Apr. 27, 1756, L\T)L\ Ruxn£.;ts and resided in his native town. He 
d. in 1764, leaving a widow and two chii.'-en. The widow was m. to Peter 
Kelley, Apr. 9, 1764. 

4- Nathaniel Milliken* f3), fourth son of XathanieF' (1), b. in Scarbro, Me., 
Apr. 12, 1738; m. Anna . He was a grantee on Union River in the new- 
town of Trenton, and as I cannot find any descendants in Western Maine, I 
suppose he settled somewhere " Down East." 

5. Thomas Milliken* (1), fifth son of Nathaniel^ (1), b. in Scarbro, Me., Oct. 
25, 1739; m. Dec. 19, 1760, Lucy Libby of same town. She was a daughter 
of her step-mother by her first husband, " Trumpeter 'Siah." This Thomas lived 
on the west sifle of Beech Ridge, in Scarbro. \\'as one of the grantees on Union 
River, but as his cousin of the same name was also a prominent grantee, I can- 
not tell which lot was drawn by him. He had children b. in Scarbro. 

6. Stephen Milliken* (1), sixth son of Nathaniel^ (1), b. in Scarbro, Me., Jan. 
II, 1741. I cannot find any record of marriage or of children, and he may have 
died in childhood. 


7. Robert Milliken* (1), seventh son of Nathaniel" (1), b. in Scarbro, Me., Oct. 
2, 1743; m. to Jane Hopkixs, a Quakeress of Londonderry, X. H.; was a grantee 
on Union River and settled in Trenton and lived there many years. He became 
disabled by sickness or an accident, and to save him from becoming a town charge 
his relatives went from Scarbro and brought him to that town on a bed slung 
between two horses; the journey was long and painful and they were nearly two

Deposition' of James Springer of Georgetown, County of Lincoln, 
aged seventy-two years, testifies and says, that he came to Scarbro in 1728, and 
that he lived there about ten years, and that he was well acquainted with the 
tract of land called Alger's Claim, and that Edward ]MilUken, Samuel Milhken 
and Nathaniel Milliken lived on said Tract of Land at that time, and in the year 
1730, he, the Deponent, was with Mr. John Jones, Surveyor, when he ran out 
said land, and he began at the Head of Said Claim which was at the Crotch on 
the Nonesuch River, above the bridge, near the great hill called Joslin's Hill, 
and that he, the said Jones, run from the aforesaid Crotch southwest and came 
out about sixty rods above the uppermost falls on Dunstan River, so called, 
and that he always understood by the general Talk of the people there that the 
aforesaid hne was the Head Line of said claim, and that he has seen the tide 
flow up to the said Crotch and has carr}'d pine timber down said river from above 
the bridge where it now stands, about thirty feet long and from 12 to 17 inches 
square, and the said Millikens claimed the said Land as theirs and descendants 
of the said Algers at that time and that about the same time he, the Deponent, 
helped to build a bridge over said River where it now stands in the road lead- 
ing over said great Hill called JosUn's. James Springer. 
Falmouth, July 13, 1770. 

On a plan of Dunstan of date 1784, we see that " Jona" MiUiken's residence, 
a building of one story, was situated a little westerly of the road that turns north- 
erly from the way from Stroudwater to Dunstan and easterly of Dunstan Corner. 

Westerly of "Sticke}- Meadow Brook,"' on the northerly side of the same 
way, going westerly, was the residence of Nathaniel Milliken, a house of two 
stories. West of this was the two-storied house of Edward Milhken. 

In a southeasterly corner made by the main highway to Dunstan Landing 
was the one-storied house of Samuel ]SIilliken. 

The residence of Joseph Milliken, a house of two stories at the front and 
one story at the backside, was on the westerly side of the Landing and river 
fronting eastward. This was many years a tavern, and Joseph Milhken the 
landlord, and here pubhc meetings were held as well as many an oldtime " spree" 
witnessed when the " ropes were wet." 

Land in Dunstan. 

On July 30th, 1720, a lot of land was laid out at Dunstan for Thomas Mason 
by virtue of a warrant of date June 22d of that vear, consisting of one hundred 
acres, the line beginning at the Dam on \e Brook by Capt. Westbrook's mast 
house at Dunstan. ye west side of said brook, and running by ye brook to the

Alexander Milliken was appointed deputy postmaster at Frankfort, Hancock 
County, Maine District, by Gideon Granger, Postmaster General of the United 
States, in 1808. In iSio, he was appointed a justice of the peace for seven 
years "if he shall so long behave himself well in said office." This commission 
was signed by Elbridge Gerry. Governor of Massachusetts. In 1812, he was 
appointed by'the same authority Fourth Associate Justice of the Court of Ses- 
sions. In 1814, he was appointed by James Madison to be principal assessor 
for the second district of Massachusetts; in 1818 to be justice of the peace for 
Hancock County, and again in 1822, and a notary pubhc in 1834. 

Abigail Milliken born in Boston, Mass., April 3, 1757, was married to Ben'JA- 
MIN CHIPM.A.N 2d, who was born Feb. 4, 1752, in Kingston, Mass. They 


moved from Taunton. Mass.. to Poland. Me., in April, 1779, and he died there 
June 18, 1S3S. His wife died there April 3, 1S25. Both were buried in Poland. 
They had seven children named Charles, Abigail, Lucy, James, Lydia, Sarah 
and Wadsivorth and their descendants are now numerous. I have not learned 
whose daughter this Abi.^ail Milhken was, but this record proves that there were 
families of the name in Boston not descended from the brothers who settled in 
Scarbro. She must have been a relative of these, however. 
Abigail Milliken was born in Scarbro, Me., Aug. 15, 17S5; was pubhshed Oct. 
I, 1803, to marry Bf.vtamin Foss, Jr., son of Benjamin and Mary Foss. born in 
Saco, Me., July 3, 17S0, and had children born in Saco, named as follows: 

1. Bartlett Foss, b. Aug. 9, 1804; m. ^L\RY Ann Waterhouse of Scarbro 
(Int.), May 7, 1S27. 

2. Mary H. Foss, b. Apr. i, 1S07; m. Joseph S. Berry of Scarbro (Ind.), 
Mar. 16, 1830. 

3. Catherine H. Foss, b. Aug. i, 1809. 

I have not made connections between this Abigail and her parents; nor of 
Abigail Xormax Milliken who was married June 13, 1792, to John Babb. 
Mary Milliken, bom about 1758, was the second wife of John Fenderson of 
Parsonsfield, Me., and died there Aug. 29. 1S51, aged 97 years, Fenderson's. 
first wife was Sarah McKenney of Scarbro. 


James D. Milliken^ ( ), son of James\ ( ), of Portland, Me., was m. and had — if 
a note found among the papers of the late Horatio Hight is correct — children 
as follows: 

I. UsuRLA S. Milliken^, m. Henley.

Robert MuUiken^ was a Scotchman, and tradition makes him come from Glas- 
gow. He probably sailed from that port, but from the speUing of his surname. 
it would seem that he was a native of some one of the northern counties. His 
name appears on the Brattle Street Church records of Boston in connection with 
others of the family as early as i6S6. He settled in Rowley, now Bradford, 
Mass., his homestead being in a pleasant spot on the bank of the ^lerrimac 
River. He united with the West Parish Church of Bradford, Mass., June 26, 
1720, and the following exclamation was written after the entry of his name in 
the records: ''To God shall be all the glory." Following the name of his wife, 
who united with the church the first of ^lay that year, are the Latin words: 
Trinni Deo Glorica. Some of his children were born and christened in Boston, 
as the Brattle Street Church records show. He made his will Jan. 9, 1740, and 
died June 11, 1741, leaving a widow and five children, to whom he made bequests. 
He was 76 years of age. The old gravestones that mark the last earthlv resting- 
place of the ancestors and early members of this family, may be seen in the old 
West Bradford cemetery, on the River Road, about one mile below the bridge 
which connects Haverhill with Bradford, and in the East Parish (now Gro\e- 
land) burying ground, near ''Balch's Grove." The inscription on the grave- 
stone is as follows: 


WHO DIED JUNE 11, 1741, 


In his will he gave his son Robert his "loom and tackle for wea\ang," and it is 
my opinion that he was a Scotch weaver. He was also said to have been a maker 
of gravestones.* Robert Mulhken was the father, by his wife named Rebecca, 
of nine children, of whom hereafter.

3. Mary Mulliken'- (1), eldest daughter of Robert^ (1), b. Boston, Mass., Sept. 
26, 1692; was m. June 19, 1716, to Thomas Stickxey. She was mentioned in 
her father's will in 1740, as "late of Bradford, deceased." Her children were 
to have the household goods of their grandfather. 

4- Samuel Mulliken" (1), third son of Robert^ (1), b. in Bradford, Mass. (pre- 
sumably), Jan. 10, 1694 — one searcher has it June 20, 1695 — and d. unm. 
in 1720. His estate was administered by his brother Robert, May 18, 1721. 
All went to his brothers and sisters, and no widow appeared with dower right 
to sell or hold. The heirs sign receipt. Mentions brother Benjamin, John, 
Mary and husband Thomas Stickney, and sister Rebecca, who, immediately 
after became the wife of Benjamin Gage. 

5. Benjamin MuUikin' (1), fourth son of Robert^ (1). b. in Bradford, Mass., 
(presumably) Mar. 8, 1695; m. Elizabeth Stickney and settled in Rowlev, 
now Bradford, Mass. He was a justice of the peace and captain of the first 
foot company of Bradford, Apr. iS, 1757. The following quaint record was 
found: "February 3, 1762, To Benjamin Mulliken Esq., for the use of Meribah 
Stickney (his nephew's widow) the sum of £2, allowed by the General Court 
for the loss of her husband's gun, he being a soldier 175S, and died on his return 
home as mentioned in her petition." Benjamin was the father of ten children. 
See 3d generation. 

6. Rebecca Mulliken" (1), second daughter of Robert" (1), b. in Bradford, 
Mass., June 12, 1699; was m. Aug. 2, 1722, to Benjamin Gage. She was 
mentioned in her father's will of date 1740, and he gave her £^q, in passable 
bills of credit to be paid by his executor two years after his death — " besides 
what I have alreadv given her." 


7. Joseph Mulliken- (1). fifth son of Robert^ (1), b. in Bradford, Mass., Feb. i, 
1703, m. Jan. 7, 1736, Phebe Tyler. His name appears on the hst of polls 
of Haverhill, ^Slass., in 1745. Was mentioned in his father's will in 1740, and 
received gift of " six acres of land in addition to what had already been given 
him, and £()0 in bills of credit passable in this province.'' He had issue. See 
3d generation. 

8. Ebenezer Mulliken" (1), sixth son of Robert^ (1), b. in Bradford, Mass., 
Feb. 26, 1705; d. Dec. 10, 1714. 

9. Jonathan Mulliken" (1), a son of Robert^ (1) and Rebecca MiUiken of Brad- 
ford. No record of his birth is known to exist, but it must have been as early 
as 1710 or 1715. He m. in 1742, Martha Marsh, and lived in Bradford for 
some time, where he worked at his trade of clockmaking. Here Samuel MuUiken 
of Newburyport, clockmaker, and Nathaniel Mulliken of Lexington, clock- 
maker, served an apprenticeship with their "uncle Jonathan." The late 
Emery A. Mulliken of Lexington, Mass., found an old tall clock in that 
town, on the dialplate of which were the words: "Jonathan Mulliken, Fal- 
mouth." The owners of this venerable timepiece had assumed that it was 
made in Falmouth, Eng. As no record of a clockmaker of this name has been 
found in Falmouth, Me., it is highly probable that this Jonathan MuUiken was 
at one time, say as early as 1750, established in Falmouth, Barnstable Co., 
Mass. At any rate he was maker of the old clock in Lexington, which is evi- 
dently the same that was sold to Deacon Stone and set up by Nathaniel Mulli- 
ken when he first formed an acquaintance with the maiden who became his 
wife. No record has been found in Bradford, or any adjoining town, of a family, 
or of the deaths of this Jonathan and his wife, and they probably spent their 
last days elsewhere. 

cT'birb 6encrution. 


1. Hannah Mulliken^ (1), eldest daughter of Robert" (2), was baptized when 
six days old, July 30, 173S, in Bradford, Mass. 

2. Mary MuUiken^ (2), second daughter of Robert" (2), b. Jan. 30, 1739; bap- 
tized June 6, 1740; d. Feb. 9, iSoo, in Bradford, Mass. 

3. Robert Mulliken^ (3), eldest son of Robert" (2), b. in 1741, in Bradford, Mass. 
4- Daniel Mulliken'' (1), second son of Robert^ (2), b. Dec. 22. 1743, in Brad- 
ford, Mass. He was a soldier in the French war. In the roll of men from 
Haverhill for the reduction of Canada, in 1760, appears the name of Daniel 
Mulliken. Fie was also a soldier of the Revolution, and received a badge for 
more than six years of faithful service. There is an old house in Groveland, 
Mass., formerly Bradford, said to have been built by this man. I assume that 
he married and had issue. 

5. Ebenezer Mulliken (2), third son of Robert" (2), b. in Bradford, Mass., 
Nov. 22, 1745; m. Elizabeth Nlxo.v of that town, and d. 17S6. 

6. Sarah Mulliken^ (Ij, third daughter of Robert" (2), b. in Bradford, Mass., 
Jan. 20, 1748. 


I. Samuel MuUiken^ (2), eldest son of John" (1), b. in Bradford, Mass., June 
12, 1720; m. Sarah Kelly, descended from John Kelly, who came to Newbury, 
Mass., in 1635. ^^'■- MuUiken d. in 1752. He and' his wife were admitted 


members of the West Parish Church in Bradford, Jan. 14, 1740. Sarah, his 
widow, was m. Aug. S. 1757, to Capt. Timothy Pike. She d. May 7, 1799, 
aged 83 years, and her gravestone on Burial Hill bears this inscription: "The 
sweet remembrance of the just shall tiourish when he sleeps." She was a 
woman of amiable disposition and carefully brought up the son of her first 
husband. Samuel Mulliken must have settled in Bradford at the time of his 
marriage, and remained there for some years. He was known to have worked 
there at clockmaking with his uncle Jonathan ^Mulliken. and may have learned 
his trade of him. He was also a clockmaker in Newbur^-port, and the Inventory 
taken in 1756, shows that his shop was "'on others lands." His house was on 
State Street, near the old Tracy house, now the PubUc Library. A fine speci- 
men of his clocks is now owned in Bradford; another was on exhibition at the 
World's Fair in Chicago. Children's names with 4th generation.

2. Nathaniel Mulliken^ (1). second son of John- (1), b. in Bradford, Mas?.. 
Aug. 8, 1722; m. June 6 1751, Lydia Stoxe, daughter of Deacon Stone of Lex- 
ington, Mass. Here is the bit of romance. It was customary for clockmakcrs 
at that time to go out and "set up" the timepieces they had sold. In 174^? 
Nathaniel went out to Lexington to deliver and start one of his tall clocks in the 
house of Deacon Stone, and there met charming Lydia and was entangled in 
love's silken net. He purchased land with house, barn, and shop thereon, in 
Lexington, and made that his permanent residence. The shop found on the 
estate was fitted with the suitable appliances and tools for clockmaking, and 
Mr. Mulliken continued to manufacture these stately, solemn-sounding lime- 
keepers until his death. The clock set up at Deacon Stone's is still in Lexing- 
ton, and bears the name "Jonathan Mulliken, Falmouth.'' As Jonathan Mulli- 
ken, son of Samuel of Xcwburyport. was not b. until 1747, and was but one 
year old when the clock was carried to Lexington in 1748, he could not have 
been the maker. The late Emery A. Mulliken of Lexington, who had given the 
subject much attention, informed the compiler of this volume by letter, of date 
"Feb. 8, 1895," that Jonathan ^fulliken, clockmaker in Bradford. Mass., was 
an uncle of Nathaniel and Samuel, and that they learned their trade with him. 
If this statement be true, then Robert Mulliken ist had a son Jonathan of whom 
we have no record. But why should this old clock in Lexington bear the name 
of "Falmouth"? Careful research among early Maine documents fails to re- 
veal any clockmaker in Falmouth, now Portland, in that state. Was it made 
in Falmouth, Barnstable Co., Mass.? The present owners of this old clock 
had supposed it was made in Falmouth, Eng., but Emery A. Mulliken Esq.. 
had traced its history "through its former owners, who were direct ancestors, 
to within one or two gencrati(jns of where my grandfather left the clock and I 
feel pretty sure that it is the same one" From a note published in the Boston 


Transcript, we learn that a clock made by Nathaniel MuUiken. was owned by 
T. Osgood Wardwell, of North Andover, Mass. The name of Nathaniel Mui- 
liken and Lexington, his place of residence, were inscribed in "a silver band of 
crecent form" on the dials of his clocks. He d. Nov. 23, 1767, and his widow 
was living in his house at the time of the British retreat in Le.xington. Apr. 19, 
1775, when they set fire to the buildings and stood by until their work of de- 
struction was consummated. Emery a" MuUiken, Esq.. said his father's farm 
was a part of Nathaniel's homestead, and that from a boy he had been constantlv 
reminded of British vandalism by the old cellar-hole over which they burned 
the MuUiken house. There were seven children. See 4th generation.

f\ii\} (!3eiur;ition. 


I. Samuel Miilliken^ (4), eldest son of Jonathan* (2), and Susanna Pearson, 
b. in Newbur>'port, Mass., 1769; m. Phebe Parsons ]May 31, 179S, she being 
the granddaughter of Rev. Jonathan Parsons, founder of the Old South Church 
in Newbur^-port, and the v/arm friend of Rev. George Whitef'eld, the celebrated 
evangeUst, who d. at his house. Mr. ^vlulliken had a shop in Hallowell, Me., 
a short time, but returned to Newbur\-port and remained there the rest of his 
life. Fie was known for many years as cashier of the old Xewburyport Bank 
and of the Merchants' Bank. He served in these two institutions more than 
40 years, having resigned his office in 1S51, at the age of 82; and was probablv 
the oldest bank ofticial in regular, active service, in the country at that time. 
Samuel ]Mulliken's recollections went back to the early history of the Revolu- 
tion. The battles of Le.xington, and Bunker Hill, the " Ipswich Alarm," the 
encampment and embarkation at X'e\vbur>-port, of Arnold's e.vpedition, and all 
the principal events and prominent actors of that period and of our whole Revo- 
lutionary history, were fresh in his memory. The Daltons, the Tracys, the 
Jacksons, the Greenleafs, the Johnsons, Parsons, Bradburys, etc., of X^'ew- 
biu-v-port, were within his personal knowledge, and were, many of them, his 
contemporaries and associates. When a pilgrim pursues a long journey vvithout 
stumbling, he becomes from that very circumstance worthy of double respect. 
We looked on his age as we do on the autumnal flowers, which continue to bloom 
when the frost has withered all around them. Life is beset with temptations, 
and the man that has been sober in youth, and cheerful in age, and honest in 
all his connections, leaves us a beautiful example. Such was this venerable 
and respected citizen. His integrity, his temperance, his uniformity, his won- 
derful art of making hfe calmly pleasant, are worthy of careful imitation and 
remembrance. It is not enough to speak of his integrity; there was a peculiar 
security which every one felt in ever}' trust committed to his hand. For him to 
depart from integrity was as little to be expected as a deviation in one of the 
great laws of nature. His principles were founded on religion and, therefore, 
they were immovable. He had cultivated his mind; he had guarded his heart; 
he had bowed to the authority of God. In the parlor, at the desk, in the walk, 
he was the agreeable companion. He was a clo:5e observer of events and men, 
and hence his conversation had all the charms of a colloquial history. X'o- 
where did he shine more than at his own fireside, surrounded by the smiles of 
his affectionate household. [Adapted from an obituary ttotice by the Rev. Leon- 
ard Withington, D.D.] He had issue, eleven children. See 6th generation.

Sandwich, ^lass., a descendant of Thomas Gibbs, and, on the maternal side, 
of Edmund Freeman, both prominent in the settlement of Sandwich. Mr. 
Mulliken d. at his home on High Street, Newburyport, in the house where he 
was b., Dec. 21, 1903. As soon as he left the city High School he embarked 
on a vessel manned by Newburyport officers, and showed such efficiency as a 
seaman that his promotion was rapid. As a captain he made many voyages 
to all parts of the world, holding the confidence of shipowners in his great skill 
as a navigator, and in his sturdy integrity and honor in the transaction of all 
business entrusted to him. He went around Cape Horn during the exciting 
days of the gold fever in 1849. For a number of years he carried passengers 
from the United States and Antwerp, and during the Civil War ran between 
Calcutta and England, always flying the American flag. During his long career 
as master mariner no serious accident ever happened to a vessel under his 
command. Capt. Mulliken gave up his seafaring Ufe in 1876, and has since 
lived in comparative retirement. He was for many years curator of the 
Marine Society's building in Newburyport, and was daily at his post in the Marine 
rooms with unimpaired health until venerable in years. He had long been a 
member of the First Church in Newbury, where, from childhood, he had been 
a constant attendant when at home. No man in the community commanded 
more respect within the circle of his acquaintance than Captain Mulliken. 
Modest, almost to a fault, entirely unassuming, yet one of the bravest of men 
and the most firm in his convictions. He was a kindly man, beloved wherever 
known; a man of superior intelligence, whose knowledge of men by the observa- 
tion of many voyages, was supplemented by wide reading, so that his conversa- 
tion was dehghtfuL His death was that of a venerable citizen, a brave and skill- 
ful seaman, an honorable man of the highest integrity in all his deaUngs, a man 
too modest to seek for preferment or distinction but possessed of the ability to 


have filled almost any station of public honor with credit to himself. He ex- 
hibited the beautiful characteristics of the Christian gentleman.

John lVlulIiken\ whose parents are not certainly known but who was born in 
Bradford, Mass., as early as 1735-S, was married June 15, 1758, to Susanxa 
HuSE, and they are both styled in the records ''of Haverhill." She died Mar. 
I, 1820. The statement "John the husband died," stands on record, but no 
dates are given. These had a family of nine children born in Haverhill, Mass.» 
whose names and what we know of their posterity will follow: 

jfourtlj (ikncrutioii. 


1. Stephen Mulliken* (1), eldest son of John^ (1), and Susanna Huse, b. \\\ 
Haverhill, Mass., Nov, 7, 1759; d. there July 13, 1763. 

2. Samuel Mulliken^ (1), second son of John^ (1), and Susanna Huse. was b. 
in Haverhill, ^lass., Sept. 22, 1761, and was three times married. His first 
wife was Susanna Pearson, widow of Jonathan Mulhken, of Newburyj-)ort, 
Mass., to whom he was married ^lar. 20, 17S3. He had worked with her first 
husband as a clockmaker and may have learned the trade of him. By this 
woman, who was several years his senior, and who was said to have died in 
L)!^, Mass., with yellow fever, he had issue three children. He was m. 2(1, 
in Salem, Mass., Apr. 19, 17S9, to Sally Newhall of that town, daughter of 
Col. Ezra Newhall of the Revolution, by whom there were eight children. He 
was m." in Salem, Mass., ^lay 8, 1S19, to Miss Lydia Sanderson. Mr. Mulli- 
ken lived for several years in Salem, Mass.. where he worked at his trade of 
watchmaker, but, later, removed to L}Tin, Mass., where he remained till his 
death, which occurred Nov. 25, 1847. ^^^- Mulliken did a large business, for 
many years, as a tanner and merchant, at one time having a large store at tlie 
southern end of Market Street. He was a man of strict integrity and oreat 
industry. He had a strong will, which being usually set in the right direction, 
stood him in good stead. He once related an instance of its operation which 
seems more amusing than beneficial. During the active portion of his life, it 
was a custom, as public conveyances were few, for a couj^le of business men to 
visit Boston in company, one to pay for the horse and vehicle, and the other 
paying the tolls and horse keeping. One chilly November riay, he and Jere- 
miah Bullfinch, a neighbor, agreed to visit Boston in that partnership wav. 
Mr. Bullfinch was to furnish the conveyance, and ^Vfr. MuUikcn to pav expense's. 
\Vhen they arrived at Charlestown, which was early in the forenoon, thev found 


that an additional toll, or some other charge, to the amount of sixpence, on which 
neither had calculated, had been levied. Mr. Mulliken contended that the 
extra charge should be equally shared; but Mr. Bullfinch declared that none 
of it rightfully fell to him. They were equally matched for stubbornness and 
there they sat, disputing and arguing, till the declining sun warned them that 
it was time their horse's head was turned homeward; and home they rode, each 
undoubtedly congratulating himself on his triumph, "and." added' Mr. Mulli- 
ken, as he related the incident, his countenance radiating with the old tire within, 
though he was more than 80 years of age, " I would have sat there till this time 
before I would have paid it." — {History oj Lynn, by Alonzo Lewis.) :Mr. 
Mulliken had issue, by two wives, eleven children. (See 5th generation.)

T. Jonathan Mulliken' (1), eldest son of Samuel' (1), b. in Newburyport, Mass., 
May 26, 1784, and d. in Lynn, Mass., Nov. 12, 1867, ^ged 83 years, 5 months 
and 17 days, unm. Shoemaker. He was considered somewhat eccentric. He 
wanted his food of all kinds mixed up in a large bowl and well sugared; then it 
was eaten with great relish. He also had a mania for making scrap-books, and 
had on hand when he d. a hbrary of such. 

2. William Mulliken'^ (1), second son of Samuel' (1), b. in Xewbur\-]jort, Mass.,

Elizabeth Smart, who d. in 1S60, aged 50 years. The family settled in 
Augusta, Me., in 1S45, ^"d ^^''- Mulliken was a director in the Freeman's Na- 
tional Bank there for many years. He was a man of retiring habits, never wash- 
ing to be conspicuous, and a real '' home body." He was famiUar with all cur- 
rent events; not a great talker, but a tireless reader. He was also a director for 
a railroad. He did an extensive business, always paid in full, and was respected 
by his fellow-citizens and beloved by his family. .Mways voted the Whig or 
Republican tickets, believing that the best results come from the government 
by that party. He was S9 years of age at his death. There were seven chil- 
dren, named as follows: 

I. George S. Mullikex". a lawyer and Judge, d. in San Antonio, Texas, 

where he had been associated with his brother in business. 
n. Charles Hexry ^SIulliken^ b. in Hallowell, Me., on Mar. 18, 1831; 
m, Dec. 3, 1851, Miss Sarah E. Hallett, daughter of Watson F. 
Hallett of Augusta, ^le. He was educated in Augusta, Me., until eigh- 
teen years of age. He then went to Boston, where he secured a situation 
in a merchandise broker's office, in which he spent three years. Return- 
ing to Augusta, he started in business on his own account, as a member 
of the firm of Da\'is & Mulliken, and was thus engaged for seven years. 
He was president of the Freeman's National Bank in Augusta for about 
40 years. His next venture was in the southern commission trade, 
founding the house of Means & Mulliken, with headquarters at Boston. 
They established a Une of packets between that city and Indianola, 
Texas, having also a store at San Antonio, where a brother of Mr. Mul- 
liken was located in charge. The firm did a thriving business until the 
breaking out of the late Civil War, which brought, as a rule, speedy 
ruin upon aU Northern men who had business enterprises in the South. 
Their stock of goods, valued at nearly $50,000. was seized by the Con- 
federate government and confiscated. Mr. Means, on hearing of the 
calamity which had befallen them, went South to see what could be 
done toward retrieving their losses. He was at once arrested at San 
Antonio, and sent to Matamoras under guard, where he escaped to 
Mexico, and afterward got to New Orleans, whence, by the help of 
General Butler, he came North. Their losses amounted to 850,000, 
and as Mr. Mulliken had his all invested in the enterprise, this misfor- 
tune, of course, left him a ruined man. At the same time, too, his health 
failed him, which for years compelled him to retire from anything hke 
active business hfe. The sudden and disastrous termination of his busi- 
ness aft'airs, also, left him deeply in debt, but these obligations he after- 
ward liquidated by paying one hundred cents on the dollar to his credit- 
ors. He then made up his mind to go west, and in August, 1865, 
went to Chicago, which has since been his home. Here he first entered 
the employ of Page & Sprague, wholesale dealers in paints, oils and 


glass, on Dearborn Street, as confidential man. He continued with them 
until 1872, meanwhile losing all he had in the fire. He then became 
cashier in a savings bank until 1874, when he entered the real estate 
business, in which he has remained until the present time. Mr. MuUi- 
ken is an elder and active member of the Fourth Presbyterian 
Church. He is particularly active in mission work, and is assistant 
superintendent of the Howe Street Mission, with a Sunday school num- 
bering six hundred, and a very prosperous industrial school attached. 
He is also a member of the Citizens' Association, Chicago Club, Union 
Club, Real Estate Board, and is on the Executive Committee of the 
Presbyterian Social Union. As a real estate dealer Mr. ^Nlulhken has 
from the first taken a leading position, and since 1874 has been con- 
nected with many of the important changes in Cliicago realty. 

Charles Henry Mulhken and wife had four children, of whom one 
only is Uving — ,4. Henry Muiliken, Esq.'', of the firm of Pettibone & 
MuUiken, dealers in railroad supplies.

11. George Muiliken^ (1), seventh son of Samuel* (1), b. Nov. 26, 1813, and d. 


I. Edward Muiliken' (1) (parents not known) was b. in Bradford, Mass., in 
1754; m. a widow of Da\'id Newell Coffin whose maiden name was Betsey 
Browx, and who had one son,* his father's namesake, by her first husband. 
He d. of paralysis in Sidney, Me., Aug., 1859, aged 104 years. 

He was a Revolutionary soldier, having enlisted in Bradford, ^^ass., in 1781, 
for six months under Capt. John Robinson, Col. Turner's regiment of the Mas- 
sachusetts Line Troops. He marched through Boston to Rhode Island, and 
was stationed at Butts Hill, and Ne^^-port. He was discharged late in Novem- 
ber, 1 781, at Butts Hill. In his application for pension he states that he Lived 
in Bradford, !Mass., during the Revolution; that he after^vards Hved in New

nebec Co., and lived there with his only daughter until his death. He was for 
many years so afflicted with rheumatism that he was unable to perform, manual 
labor. His wife predeceased him, but the date of her demise is unknown. 

He was of medium height and fair complexion, with clear blue eyes — a fin e 
looking old gentleman. Being a fine vocaUst, "with a voice as clear-toned as 
a bell," he would often, even when very aged, join with his family in singing 
some famihar measure. He had been a teacher of music. His faculties were 
retained until the close of his Ufe.

John Mulliken^ (1), born as early as 1680-85, his parents' names unknown, was 
of Methuen, Mass. He and his daughter, Jane, purchased land of Capt. Joshua 
Swan. In another conveyance, June 13, 1748, Joshua Swan, consideration ;^8o, 
sold to John Mulliken, laborer, and Jane Mulh'ken, spinster, a part of his origi- 
nal grant from the General Court on Haverhill old line, in ]NIethuen, 40 acres 
and a house. This lot of land was on the border of Salem, N. H., and on the 
corner where Haverhill turns up and touches Methuen. The estate was com- 
posed of parcels of land acquired at ditTerent times. In 1757, Joshua Swan for 
;^33 sold to Joseph Sprague of Methuen, laborer, land on the west side of Haver- 
hill old line, and on the same page is recorded a deed from James Long to Joseph 


Sprague, "including the estate, my wife, Jane Long, bought togather with her 
father, John MuHiken, of Capt. Joshua Swan and set off to my wife as dower." 

In 1757, James Long gave a deed to Jimima Sprague of Methuen, called a 
daughter of John Mulliken. In the same year Jiminia Sprague bought back 
the place on Haverhill hne, in Methuen, which her deceased husband had sold, 
and with it a strip of land inherited by Jane, widow of James Long, from her 
father, John MuUiken's estates, that fell to her share. 

" John MuUiken of Methuen. husbandman, in consideration of a bond given 
me by Daniel McCleary, Jr., my grandson of Methuen, husbandman, who binds 
himself for ;^ioo, to care for me in comfortable and honorable support and main- 
tainance during my natural life, do give my land in Methuen, iS acres bounded 
by land of Daniel McCleary, East by Haverhill Une and James Long & Tit- 
combs farm & Co., May 2S, 1762. Witnessed by Daniel McCleary, Sr., and 
Ebenezer Barker. June i, 1762. Recorded Oct. 22, 1765." 

Attached to the foregoing ''Life Lease" is a statement that James Long and 
Jean his wife, daughter of John Mulliken of Methuen, are the proper owners 
of 40 acres of land and a house which John Mulliken and Jean bought of Joshua 
Swan together. The parties agree that John Mulliken and heirs shall have 
18 acres, and Jean to have 41 acres, each party to hold title in buildings and 
\ acre lot under the house. James and Jean Long quit claim to honored father 
the 18 acres he gave to his grandson Daniel McCleary, Jr., May 4, 1756. At the 
time the division was made, 1762, Daniel got it. Witnesses: James Marsh, 
Daniel McCleary and Moses Morse. 

This John ^lulhken could not have been a descendant of that Robert MiUi- 
ken whose name stands at the head of the Bradford branch. He was born as 
early as 16S0-85, earher than any of the children of that Robert; besides, his 
son John and family are accounted for. Robert Mulliken, son of Hugh of Bos- 
ton, born Aug. 9, 1681, if he survived childhood, has not been traced. A Robert 
Mulhken married Mary Hoyt in 1737. As we find mention of several branch 
families in the early records in and about Boston, which are not connected with 
either the Bradford, or the Alger-Millikens, we conclude that some of those 
parents whose names appear in the Brattle Street church records settled not 
distant from the geographical "Hub" and left children whose names crop up 
in the old registers now and then. An e.xhaustive search might reveal records 
of births that would make genealogical connections.

I, John Burritt MuUiken' C2). eldest son of Henry' (I), was b. in Campbell- 
town, Steuben Co., X. Y., May 30, 1S37; m. in 1S58 to Emma Annette Batch- 
elder at Chicago, 111., and d. at Detroit, Mich., Nov. 23, 1S92. His boyhood 
was spent on a farm near Crete, Will Co., 111. He was employed as clerk in the 
drugstore of his uncle, Dr. Harvey Burritt, at Maumee City, O.. at the age of 
15, and later for Hon. J. M. Ashley at Toledo, O. At the age of 19 his career 
as a railroad man began as mail agent on the Illinois Central Railroad, running 
between Chicago an<i Centraha. Soon he was made station agent for the road 
at Mattoon, 111., but remained only a short time, as he was transferred to the 
general freight office at Chicago. A little later he entered the service of the 
Galena. Chicago & Union R. R.. and in August, 185S, was made the road's 
agent at Rockford, 111., where he rem.ained seven years, going from there to 
Belvidere as agent for the railroad, and agent, also, for the American Express 
Co. After six years he was appointed agent for the Chicago & Northwestern 
and Rock Island & St. Louis railroads at Stirling, 111. 

In May, 1874, Mr. MuUiken became a local tratfic agent of the Winona & 
St. Peter's R. R. at Winona, Minn. Within a year he was chosen as super- 
intendent of the Peninsular Division of the Chicago & Northwestern, with 
headquarters at Escanaba, Mich. In 1875 he became superintendent of the 
Detroit, Lansing & Northern and the St. Louis & Saginaw Valley Railroads, 
with his home and headquarters at Detroit, Mich. His last position in railroad 


enterprises was vice-president and general manager of the last mentioned roads, 
together with the Chicago & West Michigan Railroad, which position he held 
till March, iSgo, when, after having made a most honorable record, he resigned. 
From this time until shortly before his death he held responsible positions as 
member of the Board of Public Works of Detroit, and Manager of the Citizens 
Street Railway. The MuUiken station and post office in Eaton County, Mich., 
was named in his honor. 

Mr. MuUiken was a man of great e.xecutive ability, and very popular among 
business men. At the time he resigned as manager of the D. L. &: X. R. R. the 
citizens of Detroit and railroad men of the State gave him a Jubilee reception 
in one of the large halls of Detroit, as a mark of appreciation and respect as a 
citizen and railroad manager. 

His death, while sudden, was not unexpected to those who knew him. For 
several years he was afflicted with a severe stomach and heart trouble, to such 
an extent that he frequently became unconscious. Only three weeks before his 
death he went with a party of friends on a shooting excursion in the northern 
part of Michigan. While away he was seriously ill and returned home on 
Sabbath preceding his death. On arri\ing home he seemed better, and was on 
the street looking very well. He retired as usual on Tuesday night, but v.hen 
his wife called to him in the morning, he did not answer. He was beyond help, 
and his departure was easy and sudden. 

The attendance at his funeral of Knight Templars, railroad men from all 
over the state, and business men from the city, also attested his popularity and 
the high esteem in which he was held. 

He was one of the organizers and active workers in the Universalist church, 
and always an interested member, whether trustee or simple attendant. In re- 
ligion he was reverent and candid. He thought much upon spiritual matters, 
though he cared httle for forms. He appreciated good literature and had a 
fine sense of the artistic. 

His funeral was held on Friday, Xov. 25th. The body was taken in charge 
by the Knights Templars and borne to the church of Our Father. Services 
were conducted by Rev. Lee S. McCoUester, pastor, Rev. Charles Fluhrer, D.D., 
of Grand Rapids, a personal friend, and Rev. Reed Stuart, of the Unitarian 
Church, in the presence of a large number of friends of the deceased and in the 
hearing of Mr. MulHken's family, who remained in the pastor's study. The 
floral tributes were magnificent, one being the beautiful emblem of the order, 
from the Detroit Consistory, 3 2d degree, of which Mr. MuUiken was a member. 
A handsome cross was Detroit Commandery's gift. The interment was at 
AVoodmere Cemetery.

he was married to Achs.a.h Sawyer, daughter and fourth child of Reuben and 
Tryphena (^Nlesser) Sawyer, of Londonderry, X. H". Reuben Sawyer was born 
in Dracut, Mass., and Tryphena Messer, his wife, was born in Methuen, Mass. 
After the mother found homes for her children she returned to Philadelphia, 
where she had relatives. John Mulliken never saw his mother after he went to 
Mr. Reed's to Uve. It is said that John had a brother George, and that their 
mother's maiden name was Eliza or Elizabeth Klein or Kline.

Alexander Milliken, a native of the Lowlands of Scotland, resided at Castle 
Dawson, or Dawson Bridge, on tlie river Boyne, in the province of Ulster, North 
of Ireland. He is said to have been one of four brothers who were among the 
sturdy defenders of Londonderry in the memorable siege of 16S9, he alone 
surviving. His grandson James — who was probably reared mostly in the 
family of his grandparents — remembered that at his grandfather's funeral the 
military turned out to do honor to an old soldier's memory who had been one 
of the survivors of the siege. From this Alexander Milliken through his sons, 
WiUiam and Alexander, and another brother, probably named Robert, who 
went South, have descended many branches and numerous famihes now scattered 
into several states; among them, as will appear, the family designated ''Milli- 
kans of Washington, Mass." The Scotch-Irish ancestors of this race were 
staunch Protestants of Presbyterian faith who trained their children in the fear 
of God, and their posterity have generally exhibited the moral and religious 
characteristics of their progenitors. 

Alexander Milliken" (2), son of the preceding, born at Castle Dawson, Ireland 
(probably), in 1720, was by occupation a cooper and farmer. He evidently had 
two wives, the first, whose name does not appear, dying in Ireland, where his 
eldest son, James, was born eight years before his next children. He emigrated 
to America, sometime between 1744 and 1751, and it is supposed that he tarried 
awhile with some of the Scotch-Irish at Watertown, or Cambridge, Mass. (prob- 
ably with his brother William in Washington, Mass.), but soon after became 
a resident of Windham. X. H. He removed to Wilton, N. H., when his son 
Samuel was an infant; thence, in 1775, to Sharon, N. H., where he probably 
died. This Alexander was also a soldier, being a member of Col. John Hart's 
regiment in the Crown Point expedition during the French and Indian War; 
serving from April 27 to Nov. 23, 1758. His will, probated Aug. 7, 179S, is 
recorded at Nashua, N. H., his son Samuel being named as executor. He must 
have been a man of much natural force of character, for he dealt extensively in 
real estate and acquired a good property for his time. He was called to lill 
some of the minor municipal offices. 

Note. — Since the publication of "Saco Valley Settlements and Families," in 1S05, by- 
Rev. G. T. Ridlon, Sr., in which it was stated that James Milliken of Sharon, X. H., was a son 
of Alexander Milliken of Wilton, X. H., there has existed some doubt respectinc; such rela- 
tionship, founded principally upon a family tradition, but since it has been learned that .\lcx- 
ander of Wilton, removed to Sharon and probably died there near his son's home (if not in it), 
there appears no grounds for doubting the connection as stated in the volume above mentioned. 
A more thorough examination of the old records of Windham, Wilton, Pclcrl>oro, and Sharon, 
might result in documentary proof of the relation. — Author. 

^\nx^ feneration, 


James Milliken' (1), eldest known son of Ale.xander^ (2), was born at Castle 
Dawson, or Dawson Bridge, in County Londonderry, Ireland, and 011 ilie river 


Boyne, in 1744. He was t\nce married, his first wife being Elizabeth Mc- 
KoxE of Ireland. In the autumn of 1765, with his wife and one child, he sailed 
for America, and arrived at Boston, Nov. 4, 1765. They made a brief stop witli 
friends at the Scotch-Irish settlement in Watertown or Cambridge, Mass.; from 
this locahty they removed to ''Peterboro Shp," now the town of Sharon, N. H., 
where they settled, and where nearly all of his children were born. James Milli- 
ken and wife had the genuine Scotch love of books and brought across the water 
with them by far the finest library that had ever been seen in Peterboro or 
vicinity. It was long the subject for much talk in the new settlement, and the 
owner made generous loans of books to the pioneer families for miles around. 
He probably never dreamed of the far-reaching influence this hbrary would have 
in the community, and it does not require a wide stretch of imagination to be- 
lieve that, through the use of this collection of books, to James ^Iilliken belongs 
the honor of having sown the first htcrary seed that eventually developed (three 
years after his death) into the establishment in Peterboro, of the first Free Pub- 
lic Library in the United States; for to this town is this high honor now fully 

True to his Scotch ancestry, James Milliken early showed his patriotism 
in the Revolutionary War. He was a member of Capt. Joseph Parker's Com- 
pany raised out of Col. Enoch Hale's N. H. Regiment. They joined the North- 
em Arm.y at Ticonderoga, N. Y., being mustered in July 18, 1776, by Col. Hale, 
paymaster and muster oflicer. He served with his regiment faithfully, enduring 
its hardships and privations without a murmur, and in due time received his 
honorable discharge. 

He followed the occupation of his father, that of cooper, adding the pursuit 
of agriculture. His first wife, by whom seven children, died of childbed fever. 
He married, second, Elizabeth McCoy (perhaps daughter of William and 
Ivlary J. of Peterboro), by whom nine children. He outhved his second wife 
and died at the beautiful farm homestead of his son James, in South Charles- 
town, N. PL, Mar. 4, 1830, aged 86. His grave in the village cemetery- is marked 
by a medium sized white marble slab.

1842. Widow apphed for pension and filed a leaf from Bible containing family 
record. He was in the battle of Bunker Hill and was one of Stark's men (of 
whom 15 were killed) wounded in that historic engagement. He was to^\'n clerk 
of Sharon, N. H., — to which tovm his father had moved from Wilton in 1775, 
— from 1791 to 1796; from 1804 to 1S07, and from 1809 to 1811. The family

Royal, had d. less than a year previously, June 16, 1S19, in his 28th year, unm. 
Two such afflictions in the space of ten months might have crushed a woman 
of less heroic character, but she bravely bore her part, giving prominent atten-

medical education in Philadelphia, and -ettled in the practice of his profession 
at Jefferson, Greene Co., Pa. Dr. Milliken was of a cheerful disposition and 
stirring and practical habits anrl attaincrl prominence in his profession. He was 
fond of anecdotes and occasionally indulged in versifying, a habit, or taste, that 
was transmitted to some of his grandchildren. In one of his letters he WTOte: 
"Tell my sister Bellows, if she has had melancholly days, to throw them be- 
hind her, for it is folly to think of them more, and to enjoy the present moment, 
for it is all we can call our own." His first wife d. about 181 2, and late in life

buried beside her husband in Farmingdale Cemetery. She was a woman of 
remarkable mental and physical vigor — a genuine representative of the best 
tj'pe of X^ew F.ngland womanhood, and possessed the dash and breadth of the 
great free West. A granddaughter has written of her: ''She never stooped, and 
her step was light and elastic as a girl's." The same woman relates the follow- 
ing: "Grandmother Bates had been away visiting, and started to walk home 
across the prairie. She had not gone far when she saw a young horse (that had 
been worked some the spring before) feeding. She caught him, led him to a 
gopher hill, and mounted without saddle or bridle. X*o sooner was she on his 
back, than he started on the run for home. There were several branches (called 
brooks in the East) to cross; these he jumped. Uncle saw them coming and 
opened the gate that the horse might not stop too suddenly. He slackened his 
pace, as he entered the yard, and grandmother sprang to the ground, delighted 
with her ride. She must have been, at the time, at least 65 years of age. She 
did not come to Illinois till she was 63. Could any of the present generation of 
Milliken descendants ride as well? I used to be thought a fearless rider, but I 
could ne^•er have dared such a ride just for pleasure." 

Mrs. Bates had twelve children, named as follows, of whom four were b. in 
Potsdam, X^. Y., the others b. in Xew Hampshire:

was a tall woman and vigorous physically and mentally, and well informed. 
When 90 years of age she was interviewed by Daniel L. Milliken, and was then 
clearminded and active bodily. To information she gave at this interview, the 
descendants of James MiUiken are largely indebted for the knowledge of their 
early ancestors contained in this book. Although reaching the great age of 
91^ years, she did not d. of old age, but from a fall and broken hip. She had

Weaver. He d. at Alstead, X. H., in 1S65. He was an extensive land owner, 
a man of much force and originahty, and was active in town affairs while a res- 
ident in Charlestown, X. H. Was one of the selectmen in 1S33, 1S34, 1S44 and 
1849. The following incident shows something of the character of this man. 
While working in his wheelwright shop in Alstead, X. H., he was suffering from 
a sore corn, and decided to try his hand at surgery; so placing his foot on a block, 
he held a sharp chisel upon the troublesome toe and gave it a smart clip with 
his hammer and was instantly minus that member of his body. He wrapped a 
bit of cloth around his bleeding foot, remarking that he guessed that corn would 
not trouble him any more, and went about his work. The result of this was so 
successful that he tried the experiment upon another corn, took cold, and came 
near terminating his Hfe. Five children. See 4th generation.

unm. in Vernon, Ind., in 189 . Before the war he was a successful 
merchant. He served his country throughout the entire war as a cav- 
alry officer in Missouri — lieutenant and captain. Being without a 


family of his own, he took special interest in the education of the 
children of his bhnd brother. Royal. Capt. Hiller possessed a taste 
for literature and wrote much, in creditable verse. We subjoin a single 
characteristic stanza from his pen: 

" But why complain of things bevond our power? 
We cannot storm the barricades of Fate, 
Let Patience fringe with gold each murky hour, 
And blaze the way that leads to Wisdom's Gate." 

m. James H. Hiller, b. in Jefferson, Greene Co.. Pa., Mav, 1827; m.

Sept. 30, 1857, Sarah Rosebf.rry. Resided in Kansas City, Mo, 
Like his brothers, he was of the same patriotic makeup as the' ances- 
tral stock from which he sprung, his grandfather Hiller and his great- 
grandfather Milliken, both having been Revolutionary soldiers. Like 
his brothers, John and Hiram, he was a cavalr>- officer in the Union 
service in Missouri throughout the war, holding a heutenant's commis- 
sion and doing his full share to win for the family the reputation among 
the Confederates of being "those d d fighting Hillers." 

VI. H1R.AM M. Hiller, b. in Jetlerson, Greene Co., Pa., Apr. 23, 1834; 
m. Aug. 27, 1857, SAR.AH F. Bell of same county, daughter of Levi 
H. Bell. Mr. Hiller was successively and successfully printer, editor, 
merchant, soldier, lawyer, banker, farmer, and politician. Was one of 
the most prominent men of Northern Missouri, and attained a wide 
influence in business, mihtary, and political circles. He was one of 
the famous 30 Grant delegates in the Chicago Repubhcan Convention 
of 188O; who were given the Grant medals. He served in the Union 
Army during the entire war and rose to the rank of lieutenant-colonel. 
It is a remarkable fact that these five Hiller brothers — t}'pical Union 
soldiers — should have seen active service during so long a period and 
among the "bushwhackers" of Missouri, and come out of the contest 
without serious wounds; and more remarkable still is it, that after pass- 
ing safely through so many dangerous e.\periences Col. Hiller was 
destined to be killed by a freight train in his own ullage and in the 
quiet pursuit of the avocations of peace. His useful hfe was thus 
brought to a close at Kahoka, ^SIo., Aug. 14, 1895. He had issue 
nine children, three of whom d. young.

N. H., May 11, 1805, m. May 17, 1836, Miss Harriette Foster, b. June 12, 
1805. He received his education in his native town and early entered the store 
of A. Haskins as clerk, where he remained until his majority. He was soon after 
appointed executor of the estate of an uncle which made it necessar>- to go to 
Georgia, where he disposed of the "Woodbine Plantation." What he saw while 
in the South made him a strong anti-slavery man. After his return to the North 
he became partner in a large store at Keene. He decided in 1840, to remove to 
the then Far West, and drove with a horse and chaise 400 miles and took up land 
in Clarendon, State of New York, and that was his home until his death, which 
occurred Feb. 3, 1900. His wife predeceased him after a wedded life of 36 years. 

Mr. ISIilliken was a man of sterhng integrity, energetic in business, of a kindly 
and genial disposition, so that he was respected and beloved by all who knew 
him. On account of certain doctrinal beliefs he never united with any church, 
but was always a devout student of the Bible, a strict observer of the Sabbath, 
and one who sought reverently to do the will of God. 

Politically, he was a strong RepubUcan, always taking an active interest in 
the success of the party. For two years, 1861 and 1862, he was supervisor of 

He was under the care of his son George, who has always lived on the home- 
Stead, and from him received the most dutiful attention. 

The funeral services were attended by a large circle of relatives, friends, and 
neighbors who, by their presence and kindly words, testified to the esteem in 
which they held the departed. Children named as follows:

1833, and settled in Xewbury, Vt., which remained her home until her marriage, 
Mar. 3, 1847. Ker father was Alexander Laing. She d. at Medina, Lenawee 
Co., Mich., Apr., 1896. He resided in Cheshire Co., X. H., until May, 1840, 
when he went to Clarendon, X. Y., where his brother, Mortimer D., was already 
settled, intending to permanently locate there. Of his journey westward he 
wrote his wife as follows: "I left Keene at 7 o'clock; reached Brattleboro at 12; 
started from there at 4 A.ii., and arrived at Albany at 12 p.m. Left there at 6 
next morning for Syracuse, which place I reached at 7 p.m. Took the stage for 
Batavia, where I arrived at 5 a.m. and took the cars for Rochester, arrived at 
9 o'clock, and took the boat for Holly, which place I reached at 7 p.m." Soon 
after reaching his brother's he sent for his wife and two children, and they re- 
mained with his brother's family until after the mother died, when he returned 


with them to Keene, N. H., where he remained, — his cliildren UWng ^^•ith their 
paternal grandparents, — until his second marriage. In the fall of 1S53, he 
moved to Lenawee Co., Mich., and settled upon a farm in Hudson township, 
where he remained until 18 70-1, when he removed to the village of Medina, 
about a mile from his farm, where he conducted a hotel for a time; then retired 
from active Hfe, his sons by his second wife, meanwhile, carrying on the farm. 
He d. Feb. 5, iSgg. He was successful as a farmer, being a man of good judg- 
ment who carefully looked after his own affairs. Although possessing a some- 
what hasty temper, he was of a genial, rather jovial, nature, ever ready to do a 
favor, fond of his friends, and beloved by them. Pohtically, he was a Democrat, 
but never took an active part in politics, contenting himself with casting his 
vote. As a man his honesty and integrity were beyond question. See 6th gen- 
eration for his children's names.

new land summers. In the fall of 1S59, he went to Canandaigua, X. Y., 
to reside with his uncle, Xathan J. Milliken. He there attended at the 
Academy during the winter and in the spring entered the office of "The 
Ontario County Times,'' to learn the printer's trade. He remained in 
this position until May, 1S61, when he enlisted as private in Co. G,

when he hastened home to Michigan that he might meet his sister once 
more before she died. He soon returned to Canandaigua, and in Sep-

Seneca Co.. X. Y., who d. in J;inuary, 1894. Mr. MilUken was educated in the 
common schools and at Hancock and Keene Academies, in the meantime serv- 
ing an apprenticeship at the printing trade in the otftce of the Cheshire Republi- 
can, at Keene. Later, he worked at his trade at Burlington, \'t., and at Keese- 
ville, X. Y., where he received his first editorial training in the otTice of the 
Keesex'ille Republican, being part owner of that paper during the Presidential 
campaign of 1S44. The following year he removed to Seneca Falls, becoming 
editor and proprietor of the Courier, then the Whig organ of Seneca County. 
He sold this paper following the nomination of General Taylor, in 184S, but 
established and conducted during the ensuing campaign, a paper known as 
The Free Soil Union. He became a resident of Canandaigua. X. Y., in 1S52, 
and there established the paper to whose management he was thereafter destined 
to devote his life, Tlie Ontario County Times. 

Mr. Milliken's interest in politics dated from 1840, when he was a resident 
of Burhngton, \'t. Though not yet a voter, he there ifientified himself with the 
WTiig party and took an active part in the "Harrison and Tyler too" campaign 
of that year. Four years later, when Henry Clay, the idol of the progressive 
young men of the countr}- and the magnetic leader of the WTiig party, was its 
Presidential candidate, he was doing his first editorial work in the office of the 
Keeseville Republican. Following the defeat of "Harry of the West," h\ that 
campaign, he sold out his interests in the paper, an action that indicated how 
keen was his disappointment at the defeat of the beloved leader, and how illy 
could he brook the affront to principles embraced in the triumph of the reac- 
tionist, James K. Polk. Mr. Milhken had from the first sympathized with the 
constantly growing anti-slavery sentiment, the ground swell of which threatened 
the disorganization of both the old parties, and when he entered upon news- 
paper work at Seneca Falls, it was as the avowed champion of the radical ele- 
ment in the Whig party. When that party, in 184S, threw over both of its 
logical leaders. Clay and Webster, and selected Taylor, a slaveholder, as its 
candidate for the Presidencv, he sold his paper rather than be recreant to prin- 
ciple, and openly allied him.-elf with the movement that, declarins^ itself at the 
Buffalo con\cntion of that year for "a free soil for a free people," laid the corner- 
stone of the political structure to be known as the Repuljlican party. 

The following extract from a letter written to his father at that time, and 
recently found among a bundle of the latter's papers, shows something of the 
young editor's feelings: 


Sexeca Falls. 30th July, 1S48. 

My Dear Father : — ... I was very sorry to learn that you thought I had 
made a mistake in speaking against tlie nomination of General Taylor for the 
Presidency, and not less so tliat you should so far misapprehend my character as 
to suppose I would give him my supjiort. My dear father, I am quite too much 
"a cliip of the old block'' to do that — all the conventions in Christendom, 
aided by all the plausible sophistry of all the oily-tongued politicians in the land, 
cannot induce me to believe that Ta}lor is a reliable Whig, or otherwise qualified 
for the high office to which he has been nominated. And this being the case, I 
shall not, cannot, consent to help along the game of fraud, either with my voice 
or vote. I will vote for no man whose past life, or present position and asso- 
ciations, do not afford some reasonable assurance that he will act right if elected. 
I am not unconscious of the numerous difficulties which may result from an 
adherence to this resolution. I do not forget the dangers to my pecuniary 
interests, the loss of friends, the abuse of enemies, or the odium which invariably 
follows an independent course when unsuccessful, and which to some extent 
attaches even to the most fortunate efforts. These points were all considered 
and allowed to have tlieir proper weight — they caused me to examine the whole 
ground dispassionately, with a \iew to reconciUng myself to the Philadelphia 
nominee if possible, but the result was only a more thorough conviction that 
truth and honor required me to oppose General Taylor though endorsed by a 
professedly Whig convention, with the same zeal that I would if he had been the 
Locofoco candidate, as he had more than once signified his willingness to be, I 
could no longer hesitate but at once determined to do what I could to secure 
the nomination of a third candidate of less objectionable character and standing. 
This desirable object, I think, is now in a fair way of accomplishment. The 
Buffalo Convention, I trust, will bring out an acceptable ticket, in 'which case 
the most cheering results may be anticipated. A good union ticket, based on 
the nomination of an anti-slavery platform, is what we want, and such an one, 
if brought into the field through the instrumentality of the Butlalo Convention. 
will receive my cordial support. And if it shall turn out that a political editor 
cannot obtain a living and be honest, then I will cease to be one. "I will hang 
my harp on the willow tree,'' and tliereafter devote myself to some more honor- 
able employment. 

Those were days of great events in politics. They were days in which it 
must have been worth while to edit a newspaper. The}' were days that tried 
men's souls, tested their clearness of vision, divided them on questions of con- 
science. There were, happily, men in every Northern community whose faces 
were turned toward the right. At this time the Free Soilers of Ontario County 
wanted a paper of their own, and to whom could they look but to the young 
man at Seneca Falls, who had demonstrated his faithfuhiess to the cause they 
had at heart, by deeds as well as words. The Times and its editor had a ])art 
in shaping pohtical developments of those pregnant years, and naturally led in 
the work of organizing the part\- which arose to save the Union and free the 
slaves. At the fir^t Republican county convention, in the fall of 1855, Mr. 
Milliken was a leading spirit, and in the campaign that followed he was the 
candidate of the '"People's" con\ention for the ofiice of sheriff, but was de- 

He continued prominent m the upbuilding and management of the Repub- 
lican party, and often headed its delegations to State and District conventions. 


At the outbreak of the Civil War, he took an active and useful part in arousing 
patriotic sentiment, but the impaired eyesight wliich had embarrassed him from 
boyhood, was an insurmountable obstacle to the services he would have ren- 
dered in the army. He was elected for County Clerk in 1864. 

In the succeeding years he devoted himself to the conduct of The Times. 
and continued prominent in the management of local party affairs. In the 
Blaine campaign of 1SS4, he was the Republican nominee for Presidential 
elector in his congressional district. In iSgo, he was appointed Postmaster by 
President Harrison. He held this otTice during the ensuing four years, and 
introduced important local postal improvements. 

Mr. jSIilliken died at his home in Canandaigua, N. Y., Nov. 26, 1902, aged 
81 years and 2 months. He had been a resident of that town for over 50 vears. 
Coming there as the avowed opponent of the old regime, he had an uphill road 
to travel, both in establishing himself in business and organizing the forces of 
the growing anti-slavery movement. But he fought untiinchingly the good 
fight for free men and free soil, and surmounting business obstacles and living 
down political obloquy, he won the respect, and in a large measure the favor, 
of those whom he had opposed in his battles for principle. His sagacitv and 
wisdom as a political leader came to be widely recognized, and he was the trusted 
adviser and heutenant of Horace Greeley, Thurlow Weed, William H. Seward, 
and other noted men who were so instrumental in building the Republican 
party. Mr. ^Milliken was a practical pohtician, in the best sense of the term. 
He was loyal to his convictions and to his friends. His word was as good as his 
bond, in politics or in business. He never knowingly supported an unworthv 
man for any office. He fought fair and often fiercely, with the result that he 
made enemies as well as friends, and was a principal in many heated political 
controversies, but he held no personal rancors. He was a great editor in the 
field he had selected, and in more than one instance his brethren of the quill 
paid high tribute to his ability in that capacity. He invested his paper with a 
marked individuality, being a forceable and cogent writer. He was a public- 
spirited citizen and used his potent influence for the advancement of every 
worthy local enterprise. He was a noble specimen of manhood who did not 
shrink at discouragements, and always held principle above personal interests. 
He was averse to professions but his character stood for righteousness. Those 
who knew him most intimately recognized his Christian spirit and the high and 
unselfish motives that governed his conduct. Never intentionally did he to 
ought to injure his fellowmen. That he was a generous friend, a kind and 
appreciative employer, and a loving father only those who have known him in 
these relations can speak. The memories of their hearts constitute his best 
monument. Children named as follows:

(2) Victor Carl Mill iken' , b. Apr. 1899. 

(3) Eleanor Rachel Milliken' , b. Apr. 9, 1902 ; d. Apr. 14, 1902. 

He graduated at the lUinois X'ormal University in 1SS4. He tauo^ht two 
years in Cook County, when he was chosen principal of the Fenwood School in 
Chicago. From that institution, after five years' work, he was promoted to the 
principalship of the Fallon School, and from there after five years to the Koz- 
minski, which is situated in Hyde Park, one of the finest sections in Chicago. 
But Prof. Milhken asked to be transferred to the Carter Harrison School, where 
the work is more difficult, the school larger, and the pupils largely of foreign 
parentage; but he had been there only a year and a half when he was called to 
be superintendent of the Jewish Training School, a non-sectarian institution 
maintained by the Jewish Training School Society of Chicago, and situated in 
the heart of the Russian Refugee settlement. After the death of Prof. Bam- 
berger, who opened this school in 1890, nearly a year was spent with many 


prominent educators under consideration, when Prof. Milliken was selected and 
transferred from the Harrison School. 

During the years of his principalship in Chicago, Prof. Milliken inaugurated 
the Penny Savings Bank in the schools, and is now one of the trustees of the 
society. For two years he was superintendent of the vacation schools when 
their important work was new in the city, and the stamp of his genius remains 
in the policy he adopted. He has also worked in the Teachers' College, taking 
special interest in manual training, which he warmly advocates. His long ex- 
perience as a teacher in all grades and in high school, and with the most hberal 
preparation for the demands of the Training School, quahhes Prof. MiUiken for 
raising his present charge to a high degree of efficiency and prosperity; and 
should his Hfe and health be spared he bids fair to stand in the front rank of 
American educators.

Note. — About the time Francis M. Milliken was born and before he was named, his 
father and grandfather chanced to meet one day at (Farwells Mills") Clarendon \-illage, and 
the old gentleman, who was then town clerk, asked his son: "Well, Alec, what will you name 
the boy?" Facetiously, Alexander, Jr., replied: "Why, General Francis Marion." Assum- 
ing that his son was in earnest, the old scribe went home and entered the name and date of 
birth in the town book. When the parents heard of this transaction they concluded to let the 
record stand, "and so," says the owner of this name, "I became a S-d:amp Fox."

mington, Vt. His father d. when he was only fourteen months old. Under the 
then laws of Vermont it became necessary to have a guardian appointed over 
the children. When, six years later, the mother married again, against the 
wishes of the guardian, he took the children away from her and scattered them 
in three different towns. Daniel was particularly unfortunate in the abiding 
place assigned to him. He was abused in various ways and finally whipped 
severely for not being able, at seven years of age, to hold a plow properly for 
plowing. This caused one of the neighbors to secure the child's removal from 
such cruel hands. 

\\'hen Daniel was nine years old, the step-father decided to remove a dis- 
tance of one hundred and thirty miles northward. The children pleaded so 
hard to "go with mother" that the guardian consented, and in the deep snows 
of 1846 the family finally reached the log cabin in the forest at the foot of Jay 
Mountain, near the Canadian line,, in the town of Montgomery, \'t., that was 
to be their pioneer home. Here Daniel passed five years among bears, cata- 
mounts, deer and other wild animals, and endured the severe privations and toils 
of pioneer hfe, v/here poverty held sway and the cry of hunger was not always 
stilled. Here for one winter the boy used a piece of a broken slate to do his 
"sums" on, but he pleaded so strong the next year for "a whole slate" that 
from their scant supply of wool the mother carded with hand cards, and spun 
the yam from which the boy knit a pair of socks, carried them two miles to a 
store, and exchanged them for a slate. Having "worked out" for seven months 
in 1851, to pay, literally, for "a dead horse," Daniel decided to return to civiliza- 
tion, as his older brother had done at the same age. To gain his step-father's 
consent it was arranged that the lame boy, then eleven and a half years old, 
should go too. With their mother's blessing, and by the digging of potatoes by 
Daniel, the boys secured the means by which they finally emerged from the woods 
and returned to southern \'ermont — the lame boy to his grandmother and 
Daniel to "work out," by which means he was able to get better schooling and 
to send some money to his mother. 

An injury he had received in the logging camp at ]Montgomer}' finally drove 
him from the farm to the factory; and he drove a milk cart for one season (1854) 
in Waltham, Mass. This was the year of the riot in Boston over the return 
of .Arthony Bums to slaver}-, which nearby event greatly deepened young 
!Milliken"s anti-slavery sentiments. In the campaign of 1856 he became an 
enthusiastic agent for the sale of Fremont's Life. While travelling in this 
capacity he made his first political speech at a Fremont rally in Claremont, 
N. H., when but nineteen years of age. In 1857 and 1S5S, in company with 
his older brother, he sold books, maps and stencil goods in seventeen states 
and listened to speeches by more than seventeen statesmen. He was for 
several terms a student at "the Springfield, Vt., Seminar)' and the Claremont, 
N. H., Academy. 

In i860 Mr. Milliken married and settled in business at Brandon, Vt., as a 
manufacturer of steel letters and stencil goods. He soon drifted into the news- 
paper field and pubh.-^hed the "Brandon Monitor" and later the "Vermont 
Record." He removed with his family and paper to Brattleboro, Vt., in 1864. 
While there he established job printing offices in Brandon, Springfield, and Wa- 
terbury, Vt., and issued editions of his paper from each, printing seven of the 
eight pages at Brattleboro, and the eighth page was made up of local news in 
each place and printed with the paper folded four thicknesses, something his 


foreman, a practical printer, declared could not be done, but ^lilliken, who was 
not a practical printer, declared that it could be done, and it was done. Under 
his management the "Vermont Record" became the most noticeable and widely 
circulated paper in the state. Through its columns Mr. Milliken established an 
historic record as the first pubhshcr who ever employed paid contributors or 
used illustrations in \'ermont. The most prominent people of the state were 
among his subscribers, and frequent contributors to his paper. In Mr. Milli- 
ken's interesting autograph collection is one received by him from Hon. Solomon 
Foot, President of the United States Senate, written shortly before his death, 
which he concluded by saying: "I have taken great interest in your paper for 
its biographical and historical articles and many other things that I cannot 
readily find elsewhere. It is the only paper of which I have kept the files for 
reference." Mr. MilHken was the senior founder of the "Household" at Brat- 
tleboro, Vt., and the "Cottage Hearth" of Boston, pubhcations that attained 
wide prominence, and he is now the editor of the "Maiden Outlook." He has 
delivered various addresses and written much for the press in prose and poetry. 
His pastoral poem, "The Valley Sunset," was highly commended by the poet 
Longfellow and other leading critics. IMrs. Julia C. R. Dorr characterized it 
as worthy to rank with Gray's "Elegy" and Buchanan Read's "Closing Scene." 
;Mr. MilHken removed from Verm.ont to Medway, ^lass., in 1869, and to 
Maiden, !Mass., four years later, where he has since resided. He has been one 
of the Trustees of Maiden's famous pubhc library for twenty-three vears. He 
has always been actively identified with political affairs, and was a representa- 
tive from Maiden in the legislature of 1887 and 1888, where he was classed as 
"one of the ten leaders of the House." 

By D.\niel Lake Milliken. 

From ancient Maiden's sea-'view heights 

I've wandered lovingly to where 
I view again my childhood sights 

And breathe again Green Mountain air. 

Beneath .\scutney's towering peak, 

In robes of royal purple shrined, 
The Eden of my youth I seek, 

And leave all cark and care behind. 

O'er memory's broad and sunny plains, 

How oft I roamed to these fair hills, 
>\Tiere pomp lets fall her golden chains 

And Nature's sway the heart enthrills; 

Where jaded care and creeping craft 

Give place to merry manly toil; 
Where wealth uprears no vaunting shaft, 

Nor pinching want e'er cursed the soil; 

WTiere rosy health breathes in the air 

And hands arc warm that passing meet; 
Where men grow strong and women fair; 

Where dwells content and sleep is sweet; 

Where better far than ocean floods 

Of musty precepts trite and old, 
Are lessons fresh from wa\'y woods, 

From hillsides green and mountains bold; 


Where thought has room to spread her \\ing3 

And shake her pinions full and free, 
To mount above earth's petty things 

And calmly sail the upper sea. 

WTiere freedom, full in stature stands, 

And draws the breath that eagles draw, 
And guards with firm and loving hands. 

Yet rules with mild and wholesome law. 

Where "God's first Temples" still remain, 

The crowning glor\' of these hills — 
And passion dies — and foUies vain — 

And peace her happy mission fills. 

By yonder ■udnding road o'er which 

The ancient stage once ratthng rolled, 
Where Spring, from out her coffers rich, 

Flings far and wide her cups of gold. 

Where Summer walks vAKh. flowery trail, 

And scatters free her spicy scents, 
While banners bright sweep hill and vale 

When Autumn strikes his battle tents; 

WTiere lulls the %-oice and charm the wiles, 

That wake the brooklets dreamv flow, 
When first it sighs for choral islesj 

Away in ocean depths below; 

Wliere mountain springs a nectar yield 

Far sweeter than the ruby wine, 
And mountain airs o'er wood and field, 

A blessing bnng from fir and pine; 

Just where two roads together meet — 

And still the friendly guide-board-man 
Directs the traveller's weary feet 

And guards the spot from e\-il ban — 

There stands, Just as in years long past, 

A lowToofed cottage — small and white — 
Where Ulac blooms their fragrance cast 

And heaven sends down a softened light, 

And woods and hills with sheltering arms. 

And silver streams and meadows green, 
Throw round the spot a thousand charms, 

My eyes have elsewhere never seen. 

Twas there my infant tongue first learned 

A mother's holy name to speak. 
And there a father's lips last turned 

To print a blessing on my cheek. 

Dear humble cot, fond childhood's home, 

Where hand in hand strayed brothers three. 
Alasl there's now but one to roam 

The fields this side the jasper sea. 

And memory loves to picture yet 

The little schoolhouse in the glade, 
And oft reviews, with eyelids wet, 

The merr}- band that' round it straved. 


Ah! fort>- years have come and fled, 
Since I, a careless, happy child, 

First that fount of learning sped 
To taste its waters sweet and mild. 

A sunny spot on memor\-'s chart, 
I see the dear old schoolroom yet; 

And, clinging closely round my heart, 
Its charms I never can forget. 

Its every look I still retain — 
The teacher's pulpit desk so tall. 

The rows of benches, clumsy plain, 
The charcoal sketches on the wall. 

I hear, as in those golden days. 

The rustling leaves of well-worn books, 

And catch the gleam where mischief plays 
In merr}- •winks and tender looks. 

The ver}- trees I used to climb. 
And in their arms securely rock, 

Are rooted in my heart, nor time. 
Nor tide shall e'er their clasp unlock. 

The schoolhouse, then so old and gray, 
Still stands below the noisy mill, 

Where nature holds her ancient sway 
Of wood and rock and murmuring rill. 

The birds still flit from bush and bower, 
Or graceful sway on bending boughs; 

Still from the hills, when shadows lower 
Sound tinkling bells of grazing cows. 

Sweet waters bubble in the spring 
And sweeter berries ripen near, 

And, as of yore, the children bring 

Of each, their teacher's heart to cheer. 

And still when comes the noontide hour. 
All sail on pleasure's swollen stream, 

The teacher }-ields her sceptered power. 
And mirth and freedom rule supreme. 

The boys with bustle storm and shout, 
Still speed to tests of strength and skill, 

Or roam, as then, the hills about. 
Led on by fancy's own sweet -will; 

The girls still string fair daisy chains. 
And deftly braid the rushes sweet, 

And deck the hats of favorite swains, 
While partial glances shift and meet. 

And from the mammoth bowlder white, 
WTiere rudely carved is m.any a name, 

Young orators, with broken flight, 
Still soar av.ay to realms of fame. 

And just as then, with happy look, 
The children dance upon the green, 

Or gaily sail adown the brook 

Their birch-bark boats of silver sheen. 


But scattered wide of life's rough sea. — 

Or anchored by the golden gates, — 
Are they who sailed of old with me 

Along those happy halcyon straits. 

Yet green and dear, in storm and shine, 

Till life's December ebbs and ends. 
Will be those days of "auld lang syne," 

When hfe was May and friends were friends. 

And old Academy scenes come back, 

And faces fond before me rise, 
That long have lighted m.emor\-'s track 

And held my heart with tender ties. 

Those dear old walls \%-ith proud renown, 

Still grace the brow of ''Science Hill," 
Where, bright above the throbbing town. 

The torch of learning burneth still. 

Romantic walled, by happy fate, 

"The clustering spires" of Springfield rise, 
Where foaming waters congregate, 

To speed the wheels of enterprise. 

The rainbow's arch o'erhang the Falls; 

Below the foam-flakes lightly sail; 
The weary moss hangs on the walls 

Down which her tears forever trail. 

And gazing down the stream remote, 

Where cooling shadows kiss the shores, 
I see a happy freighted boat, 

With pleasure dipping hght the oars. 

And floating slowly dovv-n the stream, 

A glossy duck I nearer spy. 
While bending branches nod and gleam, 

Above the river's mirrored sky. 

On yonder slopes graze peaceful flocks; 

In ripeness bends the golden grain; 
The grapes are purjjling on the rocks, 

Slow homeward winds the lumbering wain. 

A dreamy haze veils hill and plain, 

A dreamy look all nature wears; 
.\ dreamy wave creeps o'er my brain 

And drowns the faintest dream of cares. 

The downy ghosts of vanished flowers 

Are sailing slowly o'er the vale; 
The partridge drums in leafy bowers, 

And distant pipes the whistling quail. 

On snow-white seas the buckwheat nod 

And sip the bees — in dreaming lost; 
While flashing plumes of golden-rod 

Foretell the coming reign of frost. 

The orchards glow with ripened fruit; 

The squirrels chatter in the trees; 
The sumac dons a brighter suit 

As Autumm whispers in the breeze. 


Soon woodbine fires will stream high up 
The trees and creep along the wall; 

The autumn browns the acorn's cup, 
And golden leaves begin to fall. 

The languid heart of Summer, faint, 
In murmurs soft of shrunken rills 

Pours out her dreamy, dull complaint 
Adown the brown and circling hills. 

There roamed of yore the chieftain free, 
And loudly wound the hunter's horn; 

Where dusky lovers danced in glee 

Now graceful waves the tasselled corn. 

Far distant sounds the rumbling train, 
Nor breaks the peaceful slumbers deep, 

Where on the turf-crowned, daisied plain. 
The \illage dead together sleep. 

There rest the sturdy men of yore, 
WTio proudly s^\■ung the flail and axe. 

Whose flint-locks guarded well each door 
Nor king could wring from them a tax. 

True men! whom nature taught to tread 
The mountain steep, the forest wide; 

Who scorned the path of ease, and led 
The van in freedom's flovving tide. 

There silent sleep those noble dames 
"WTiose hearts a kindred fire had caught, 

WTule from the morn to sunset flames. 
The blue-eyed fla.x they deftly wrought 

Their sons, who later fought in blui\ 
And sires, who stood with Allen, meet. 

To rest in peace and honor true, 

Their country's flag their winding sheet. 

With solemn sen-ice round their tombs. 
As each returning Spring appears. 

Full garlands sweet — May's fairest blooms ■ 
And veterans drop their silent tears. 

There roses bloom above the dust. 
To me my blood and memorv dear: 

And there in God's good time entrust. 
Ye fates, the clay that crowns my bier. 

The orange robes of evening trail 
Along the peaceful valley's rim; 

On high the cloud-ships slowly sail; 
Below the swallows circling skim. 

The falling waters chant sublime 

Their songs of everlasting life; 
The rapids blend a softer chime 

And men forget their babbling strite. 

The river's breath makes cool my brow 
And sheds around perpetual dews; 

The King of Day forgets his vow, 
Nor longer paints in rainbow hues. 


He brightly gilds the \illage spires, 

Then soft and still away he hies 
To light anew his mountain lires 

And burnish up the western skies. 

His flames o'er sombre forests crowds 

Sweep grandly to the mountain's crest.. 
Beneath a gorgeous robe of clouds, 

Then calm and slow he sinks to rest. 

The sunflower bows her stately head — 

Her golden lashes folds — and sighs, 
Because she thinks the lover dead 

Her heart has worshipped in the skies. 

The shy mimosa feels a dart — 

Her quivering hands together close — 
For like the complex human heart, 

A shadow's hghtest touch she knows. 

As fainter grows the dWng day 

A softer tinge o'erspreads the west; 
The whispering leaves grow tired of play; 

Nor longer swings the hang-bird's nest. 

The breath- of flowers perfumes the air; 

The bees, by straightest lines and swift, 
Their honied treasures hiveward bear 

From fields where clovers bloom and drift. 

The cuckoo calls %\-ith softer ring; 

The crows now slowly homeward fly; 
The hawk sails low, on noiseless wing. 

And through the pines soft breezes sigh. 

The patient o.x, relieved from toil, 

With pawing hoof and plowing horn 
Upturns the turfy pasture soil. 

To test his freedom, newly born. 

Behind the cows — that wend the lane, 

With kindly look and matron ways — 
The grandsire walks, with oaken cane. 

And thoughts that stray to other days. 

Belated farm teams, line on line 

Now homeward turn from store and mill 
While insect bands, with music line 

And quaint, begin their e%-ening drill. 

Like some strange goblin of a dream 

The blundering bat the soft air cleaves; 
The fields with dancing midges team; 

.\nd there's a twitter 'neath the eaves. 

On flapping wing the night hawks peep 

Amid the gathering dews and damps. 
Or d'jwnwanl dive with whirring sweep, 

Where fireflies swing their evening lamps. 

The Hlies their white banners furl; 

The brown thrush sings her sweetest song; 
On tipsy wing the beetles whirl. 

And shadowy spectres round us throng. 

The frogs their trombone chorus pour; 
The treetoad sounds his favorite trill: 


And echoes clear, from hill and shore, 
The lonely cry of the whip-poor-will. 

The crickets pipe with merry hearts; 

The robin chants his evening hvmn; 
^^'ith dew-wet feet the dav departs, 

EnwTapped in shadows gray and dim. 

The mellow chime of evening bells 
Floats softly on the de\vy air; 

The silent march of Time re-tells. 
And calls the grateful heart to prayer. 

Now Twilight fair, with pensive mien, 
Steals softly from the darkening west, 

And, hovering night and day between, 
Gives to the wear>- hamlet rest. 

She gently stays the hum of mills 
Where genii wave their fair>' wands; 

The heart with freedom bounding thrills 
Beneath the sway of softer hands. 

She gathers home to hill and dale 
The thrifty sons of toil and thought, 

.•\nd over mountain, rill, and vale 

She walks with peace and mercy fraught. 

She cools the heated brow of pain; 

She soothes the lonely heart of grief; 
She checks the race for greed and gain, 

And gives from care a sweet relief. 

She brings the boatman to the shore; 

Calls home the dove to coo and croon; 
She clasps fond lovers' hands once more 

Beneath the rising mellow moon. 

She brings the sire a welcome sweet — 
From merry babes and waiting vrdc — 

That scatters roses round his feet. 
And lightens all the toils of life. 

She wraps the hills in mists above, 

WTiile one by one, hke stars of heaven, 

A thousand village lights flash out 
Their bright electric-beams of even. 

The fireside — dearest spot on earth — 

She circles with a merry throng; 
She lights the eye of youth with mirth. 

And cheers the heart of age with song. 
She fills again the vacant seat, 

\\'here meet the gathered household-band. 
With vanished forms we used to greet 

So oft, close clasping hand in hand. 

She calls back life's unclouded spring, 
When free and stainless was the soul; 

She bids fond memories round us chng 
And tender thoughts the heart control. 

And angel eyes, with wondrous light. 

Forsaking flowery fields above. 
Come peering through the veil of night. 

And shed o'er all the beams of love. 


They have three children, named as follows; 

I. Helen Louisa Milliken', b. in Brandon, Vt., Jan. 5, 1864, and m. 
Edward A. Winchester. She was educated in the pubhc schools of 
Maiden, Mass., a private Maiden school and the Emerson School of 
Elocution and Oratory in Boston, from which she graduated with high 
honors. She early showed special talent as a reader and was strongly' 
urged by Professor Emerson to go upon the public platform as such. 
But her tastes ran more to art work, in which she had displayed uncom- 
mon promise in early childhood. She received art instruction for 
several terms from such well-known Boston artists as :Miss Kno\,'lton 
(Hunt's favorite pupil) and Miss Martin. While in her 'teens she did 
remunerative art work for the Robinson Engraving Companv, of Boston, 
for a period of several years. On June 10, 1SS6, she married Edward A. 
Winchester, son of Fitz E. and Lydia (Smith) Winchester, of Maiden, 
Mass. She did not with her marriage lose her interest in her brush 
and palette, but developed such decided excellence in oil and water 
colors, that she has received and executed a large variety of work for 
leading parties in Boston and elsewhere. She has three children. Dur- 
ing the summer of 1904 Mrs. Winchester and her son, Ralph, a young 
man of seventeen, went on a foreign tour through England, Scotland, 
France, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Holland. She has dehvered 
several pubhc addresses, of a high order of hterary merit, and \\Titten 
much for the press both in prose and poetr>-. The' children are: 
(i) Ralph E. Winchester, b. in Maiden, Mass., Nov. i, 1887. 

(2) Ruth Winchester, b. in Maiden, Mass., Jan. 23, 1889. 

(3) Edna Winchester, b. in Maiden, Mass., June 11, 1892. 

n. Katie Lissette Milliken", b. at Brattleboro, Vt., Dec. 2, 1866; m. 
Oct. 14, 189 1, Emory F. Bennett, son of Frankhn E. and Laura 
(Thomas) Bennett of Guilford, Vt. She graduated from the Maple- 
wood Grammar School of Maiden, Mass. Ill health from accidental 
injury prevented her from receiving further schoohng. Had Fate given 
her health and proper educational advantages she could easily have 
become a popular pubhc reader. When she was but seven her father 
asked her to write a good motto, and she wrote: "Do Something." 
She has been doing "Something" ever since, and largelv for the <70od of 
others, being Superintendent of the" Junior Christian Endeavor Society," 
and of the "Maiden Flower Mission," and having the power and tact 
to inspire and lead children to catch her own spirit of high and unselfish 
endeavor. One child, Mildred Flora, b. at Maiden, Mass., ^^lay 16, 1893.

Feb. 7, 1868, of consumption (occasioned by undue exposure as a public speaker 
before outdoor gatherings). When but four years of age he met with an acci- 
dent that resulted in long years of sickness and made him a cripple for life. 
\Mien the Civil War broke out, he was in charge of a salesroom in St. Louis for 
his brothers. St. Louis was then a hot-bed of secessionists, and vounjj Milliken 
threw his whole soul into the Union cause. He was one of the speakers at a 
Union meeting when the secessionists invaded their hall, put the hghts out and 
tore down the platform on which he was speaking. The unionists "held the 
fort" and flag, however, relighted the hall, expeUed or silenced the secession- 
ists and went on with their Union rally. The war compelhng the closing of his 
office in St. Louis, Royal went upon the platform as a speaker at Union rallies 
in Illinois and Indiana, and later assisted the Union cause in other directions. 
He walked seven miles on his crutch to get upon the battlefield of Antietam to 
help care for the wounded; and it was his melancholy fortune to be one of the 
witnesses of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. He was for some time 
Grand Lecturer of the Sons of Temperance for eastern Xew York, and was 
everywhere hailed as "an able and eloquent speaker."

Alexander Milliken. a Scotchman by birth, came to the North of Ireland early 
in life with three of his brothers, and all were at the memorable sie^e of Lon- 
donderry, in 16S9, he alone surviving. He died at his home at Castledawson, 
or Dawson Bridge, on the river Boyne. and was buried with military honors. 
Two sons, William and Alexander, — possibly others, as tradition says one went 
South — came to New England, and made permanent settlement. See "Milli-

I. William Millikan (1), a son of Alexander (1), was b. at Castledawson, Ireland*

century, about 1750, and first sat down at East Windsor. Conn. He and family 
went to Belfast, Ireland, to take passage on the same ship, with the same master 
with whom his wife's parents had crossed the Atlantic the year previous. By 
some unknown reason they were delayed in that city for six weeks at a heavy- 
expense. During the voyage there was a terrible storm, and for fourteen dav's 
and nights neither sun nor stars were seen. The passage was long and dreary, 
and while on the ocean Mary's first child was born, died, and buried beneath the 
waves. She was attended during her confinement by a nurse of great skill and 
kindness, and was made as comfortable as her circumstances would admit of. 
From East Windsor the family, with some of the McKnights,* came to Wash- 
ington, Berkshire Co.. Mass.. about 176S, and were among the pioneers of that 
town. William MiUikan d. Mar. 6, 17SS, aged 63. Mary, his wife, d. May

Betsey Milliken, whose husband's name is unknown, was the wife of a seaman in 
Nantucket, Mass., who is supposed to have been shipwrecked, and removed with 
her children to New Shoreham, Rhode Island, where she died. It is the compiler's 
opinion that this family are descended from Benjamin 'Mllliken, "marriner," 
son of the first John who settled in Scarborough, Me. The children of Betsey, 
so far as known, were named as follows: 

1. Archibald Milliken' (1), eldest son of Betsey (1), was b. in Nantucket, Mass., 
June 30, 1763 ; was m. June 10, 17S7, by John Sands, Warden, to Haxxah Rath- 
burn, by whom twelve children whose names will presently appear. 

2. Abram Milliken- (1), second son of Betsey (1), b. in Nantucket, Mass. 

3. William Milliken- (1), third son of Betsey (1), b. in Nantucket, Mass., Mar. 
12,1772; was m. in 1796, to Lucretia Davis, b. Feb. 27, 17S1; d. Jan. 17, 1S5S. 
He removed from New Shoreham, R. I., to Burhngton, Otsego Co., N. Y., 
where he d. Apr. 25, 1S65, aged 93 years. There were eight children, all born in 
Burlington. See 3d generation.

Robert Milliken and his wife Margaret McCrearv, called "PeEjsjy" in old 
documents, came from the North of Ireland long before the Revolution and set- 
tled in Sullivan or Ulster Co., N. Y. ; some say in 1760. He built his loghouse 
on the land since known as the "Stephen Xorris Place." Their neighbors were 
Indians, and "the alluvial banks of the Shawaugunk were thickly covered with 
wigwams." Near, was a cluster of fruit trees planted by red men, called "' Indian 

Robert Milliken secured a concession of land containing 4,000 acres described 
as " beginning at a white oak tree about one mile and one-half from Blooms- 
burg, Sullivan County, and extending to an oak tree near Walden, in Orange 

He served with Schuyler and Gates in the Burgoyne campaign during the 
Revolutionary struggle, leaving his wife and children at his home on an exposed 
frontier. When hostihties commenced, the Indians moved back to the moun- 
tains and never returned except on some predatory incursion. At one tim.e the 
neighborhood was threatened with an invasion, and the wife of Robert Milliken 
secreted a stock of provision under the cabin tloor, took her children on horse- 
back, and fled to the settlement on the Wallkill, where she remained until the 
savages were driven away; then she returned to her home and found everything 
as when she took her departure. 

After peace was declared and Mr. Milliken had returned to his home, he was 
elected assessor and pound-master. He also served as supervisor from 1789 to 
1796. When he made his will, Sept. 16, 1796, he was styled: ''Robert MiUiken 
of the town of Manicating, County of Ulster and state of Xew York." He be- 
queathed to his loving wife, two cows and one horse, or mare, and saddle; also, 
inter alia, one hundred pounds current money and her maintenance out of his 
•estate so long as she remained his widow. His executors were David Milliken 
and Marcus Crosby of Montgomery, and Nicholas Hardenburg of Shawau- 
gunk. He was a slaveholder. 

Note. — The vital records, probably preserved in some branch of the family, have not 
been found and, consequently, the pedigree will be deficient of dates. His descendants, 
with one or two exceptions, though many times applied to, have manifested a stupid or wilful 
indifference and have obstinately refused to reply to the compiler's letters. The postage 
stamps he enclosed w^re kept and, presumalily, used for some more interesting or remuner- 
ative correspondence; hence, the brief explanation must answer as an apology for the meagre 
records and descriptive matter presented.

I. Hannah Mullikin- (1), eldest daughter of Robert^ (1), was m. to WiLLiAii 
MiLLiGAX, a stcjne-cutter of Hudson, >s. Y. She was then of Hopewell, a town 
west of the Hudson river. The family moved to Stockbridge, Mass. In his 
will her father gave Hannah one hundred and sixty pounds current money of 
New York, together with her mare and saddle and bridle; she was then unmar- 
ried. She was the mother of five sons and two daughters, of whom with "Milli- 
gans of Stockbridge, Mass.," presently to appear. 


2. Margaret Millikeir (1), second daughter of Robert* (1), was m. to Mr. 
"Paulix and had one daughter. She was remembered in her father's will and

David; one-half at time of her marriage, the residue in two years thereafter. No 
other information. 

3- Mary Millikeir (1), third daughter of Robert* (1), was the wife of Jacob 
Credit — who was a genuine credii to the family — and became the mother of 
two daughters and five sons. To her was given by her father in his will, one 
hundred and sixty pounds to be paid by David, her brother, out of the estate; 
one-half at time of marriage, the remainder two years afterwards. Xo records 
have been found. 

4- Isabella Milliken- (1), fourth daughter of Robert* (1), was m. to Dr. In- 
crease Croshv, of Hopewell, Orange Co., N. Y., and had children. A grand- 
son, named Millikex Crosby, is now living at Thompson's Ridge, in said 
county, who has not replied to any inquiry. Isabella received only fifty pounds 
by her father's will. 

5- Martha Milliken- (1), fifth daughter of Robert* (1), was m. to William Gil- 
LiSPiE and became the mother of two sons and two daughters. She was given

and was the mother of four sons and five daughters. She was single when her 
father made his will, and received one hundred and sixty pounds to be paid bv 
her brother, John MiUikin. Her son. Marcus Bensel, now (1902) 86 years of 
age, has furnished much now embraced in this pedigree. 

7- David Milliken- (1). eldest son of Robert* (1), b. before the Revolution, was 
carried away on horseback when his mother tied from the Indians. He was a 
man of some prominence, as the township records show. Was supervisor from 
1804 to 1S06, and again from 1807 to 1814. His wife was Katherixe Sears of 
Montgomery, by whom two sons and two daughters. See 3d generation. 
8. John Milliken- (1), second son of Robert* (1), seems to have been a man 
who was held in respect by his contemporaries. He was elected supervisor and 
served for several years. In his will his father bequeathed to him " All that 
part of my real estate lying and being on the north side of the road leading from 
Bedfords to New Shawaugunk. beginning at the line of William Crosse's land 
and running on a straight line through the field north of said road." etc. His 
father also gave him a negro boy, and ordains that this son (John) shall be 
under guardianship of his executors until of full age.

The compiler of this vokime regrets that he cannot present a more compre- 
hensive account of a branch of the MiUiken family whose history and biography 
would evidently conduce so much of interest to its contents; but the following 
abstracts from three letters are all that is available. The literary character of 
these instructive epistles is an evidence of education, and the business connec- 
tions of the three brothers a guarantee of their enterprising spirit. W'e cannot 
avoid the impression that this family was in some way, and not remotely, related 
to the Dromore branch of Millikins so early settled in Washington Co., Pa. 

I quote from the letters of Samuel H. ^lilliken who was, in 1S93, "President 
of the Interstate Railway Construction Company's Land Department" artd lo- 
cated at Dallas, Te.\. He wrote: " My knowledge of our family is quite meagre 
on account of my father's drifting westward and not leaving any rehable record 
of his ancestry in our hands. From memory of relations made casuallv bv my 
father, Edward Millikcn. and his sister Jane, who lived with us in her old age, 
it seems that my grandfather, William ]NIilliken. and his brother Samuel had to 
escape from the north of Ireland about the time of Emmett's rebellion and came 
to New York. My father having acquired education as a physician removed to 
Washington Co., Penn., where he married Jeaxxette Kxox; thence to \'ir-

dark as to a matter that naturally would be quite interesting to me. 

" I shall be pleased to have the advantage of such information as your book 
will supply, and will remit the price for a copy when published. If in compar- 
ing items we dovetail into the genealogy I should be inclined to have my father's 
picture in the work. I shall be pleased to hear from you and to assist you in 
any way I can." 

RepMng to requests for dates of births, marriages and deaths, with biograph- 
ical data, he wrote: "Not having any reliable data available and being im- 
pressed with the idea that what Uttle I know of our branch of the family would 
not be germane nor interesting to those for whom your work is mainly intended, 
I shall not endeavor to collate the details that would necessarily be quite im- 
perfect and unsatisfactory. I shall take interest in what your work discovers as 
to the family name, and enclose an order for the book."

make out of Texas and Mexico, principalh- Mexico." 

His letter-head represents him as a "Mining Broker," and his "ad." reads:
